little red (the remixed poem)

Once upon a sunny day


Little Red was on her way


To Grandma's house deep in the woods


She hurried to get there as fast as she could


 


Grandma was feeling under the weather


Red was taking food and wine to make her feel better


Off the path, her mother warned her not to stray


A request Red knew would be difficult to obey


 


For her favourite flowers blossomed in abundance there


Their heavenly scent perfumed the air


She stuck to the path and did not see


The hungry wolf staring at her from behind a tree


 


"Where are you going?" he asked little Red


"I'm going to visit my sick Grandma" she said


"She lives in the house 'neath the three oak trees,"


She smiled at the wolf feeling completely at ease


 


As they walked together, the wolf became elated


By eating Red and Grandma, his hunger would be sated


In the middle of the path, Red stopped to stare


At the beautiful flowers that were growing there


 


"Why don't you take some to your Grandma? " the wolf suggested


It seemed to be a good idea, so she did as he requested


Meanwhile, the wolf ran to Grandma's house as fast as he could


Standing at the door, he knocked loudly on the wood


 


This evil wolf who had no soul


When Grandma answered the door, he gobbled her whole


After dressing in her clothes, he lay down in Grandma's bed


He put on her spectacles and waited for little Red


 


Red skipped to Grandma's house and let herself in


"Hi Grandma, it's little Red" she said with a grin


" Grandma, why are your ears so big?"


"So I can hear you clearly" replied the wolf as he adjusted his wig


 


"Grandma, your eyes are so big as well,"


"So I can see you better, can't you tell?"


"But Grandma, why are your teeth so big and thick?"


"All the better to eat you with!"


 


The wolf gobbled little Red in one bite


Patting his full stomach, he settled in Grandma's bed for the night


Red and Grandma clung to each other in fear


"Red, however will we get out of here?"


 


In the darkness Red grabbed the knife in her coat


And sliced the sleeping wolf from belly to throat


As the wolf screamed in pain and took his last breath


He wished little Red he had never met


 


They both climbed out of the wolf Red had slain


Content in the knowledge he would never bother them again
