Little Red

Little Red 

Little Red 
Went into the wood
Stepped off the path
And lost her hood

Her mother warned
Not to stray
Met with experience
That fateful day

Spied by a stranger 
Milling about
Giant eyes, white teeth 
A grinning mouth

Seemed very nice
But incredibly coy
He led her astray
The devilish boy

The wolf licked his lips
Took one bite and then
Opened his mouth
And ate her again 

Off went the hood
On forest floor
And Little Red 
Was seen no more

  1. Poor read. I hope she finds her way. Even is not back home.

    1. I'd like to think she gained more from the experience than the wolf did.
