Foxy Callwood of Foxy's Bar, Jost Van Dyke
What can be said about Philicianno Callwood? I find myself smiling just thinking about this irrepressible man! Who else would have a life sized, mannequin, known as "epoxy Foxy" made as a stand in for himself so guests won't feel slighted on his days off?
While writing about "the Fox" and the bar on Jost Van Dyke, adjectives describing him came flooding into my head. During this process, the article evolved into a "foxy-esque" poem in tribute to the man who never fails to make people smile!
Troubadour of Jost Van Dyke
This barefooted man with the saucer eyes
He sings about things which are normally "taboo",
In no time at all, you'll feel right at home
And when he sees you've turned red from the sun,
And when he's done exhausting all shades,
He's the troubadour of Jost Van Dyke
He's a world famous guy - renowned for his quips
The "epoxy" Foxy will just have to do
Yes, he's the troubadour from Jost Van Dyke
