Fox in Stocks

Look, sir! Look, sir! Britain mocks, sir.
Let's play tricks with Dr Fox, sir.
Ticks and tocks from Brexit clocks:
British tradesmen shake in socks.
Brexit tricks and Brexit shticks:
Fox gets kicks and gets on wicks.
Brits in shocks and Fox in stocks:
Fox locked up where no-one knocks.
Britain mocks at Dr Fox:
Fox with nix and in his box.
