Red With The Hood

Red with the Hood
By: Kathleen L. Reynolds

What had she been thinking
Walking in that wood…
The wind was so chilly
And she only had her hood.

Then there was the basket…
Filled with all that food.
The chick wasn’t bad man
But the basket…that smelled Good!

It seemed like she was lost there
He thought he’d take a chance…
If he did not get breakfast
Perhaps he’d get romance.

He asked a simple question
And received a cool rebuff
Even in the woodlands
Getting dates was tough

Seems she has a schedule that
She is bound to keep…
She wants to get to grandmas
Before grandma goes to sleep.

He offers her some company…
She demurely answers no.
He thinks okay to himself
For a short cut I do know

He hurried off to Grandmas house
Of her he made short work
Then on with the nightgown
Attention to detail he’d not shirk

When she knocked upon the door
He could feel himself drool
Oh…”Come in My Dear”
(This was way to cool)

For every question that she asked
He had a quick reply
After all our wolfy friend
Was an up and coming guy

He could have made it in the end
If not for the woodsman’s ax
The moment that he saw him…
He started making tracks

While running through the gate
Without a backwards look…
He thought, ”Oh, well there’s still the pig
Who lives beside the brook”
The End?! Perhaps
