Little Red Riding Hood

A little girl in a red cape walks in   
By the bi ways of a forest back lane  
Carefully leaving behind little crumbs 
Daring to stop for some mulberry fruit
Each step she takes is a brave little one;  
Forthcoming, the wolf hides his hairy big bulk   
Gloating ahead he dribbles a drool,  
“Hello little girl, don’t those berries look good!”
“I’m going to visit my Nanna, she’s sick like a dog”
Jumping and scooting he zips through the trees 
Knock, knock goes the wolf by the cottage blue door
Lunging at Nanna, he eats her all up with a gulp  
“Maybe you shouldn’t tarry so" said the little snap pea
“Nanna is waiting, and you have to go!”
OH My God! she exclaimed, by Nanna's bedside  
Pretty big ears you have grandma! 
Query me not little child, tis to hear you better my child!
Roars were heard from the fire billows 
Singeing the hair off his chest, and his pillow 
Through the window she flew, and lost one red shoe  
Uncle Wolf she ran cried, don’t eat me alive! 
Victorious she rants, by her momma's hip side 
Will Nanna come back? Where did she hide?
Xenial he was not, "Momma what a big hairy beast he was!”
“You never should have gone out there alone child” 
Zip along now, Nanna has gone to heaven, she’s deceased.

    You are a VERY funny and clever lady you know that Vie? Put on your red cape, fly down to LA and I'll gladly be your wolf...I promise to wear my sheep's clothing so I won't scare you away...On SECOND thought, perhaps I won't so I can gently comfort you and calm your fears. I hate wool anyway...
