little queen little princess we write poems #13 little red riding hood revisited

little red hooded queen

walking through a rainy forest

she was perfectly tired of carrying the burden

a crass moose crosses her path

inebriated and persistent with his questions

she became irritated with his horrid stench



little red hooded princess

running in the woods

she was terrified from what she had seen

she slipped in the mud and a bald headed

eagle arrived to pick her up

inebriated and persistent with his questions



she thought this is useless

my journey through the woods

poor little red riding hood

  7. Pamela...I like this take on the tale. No mention of the wolf anywhere, just a nasty moose and a crochety eagle...and I guess I'm not the only one who thought of Red as a princess-like figure. Nicely done.

  13. Fun take on this prompt, Pam. It is indeed a good thing most creatures don't wander around drunk! Andy BTW I love knowing why you use the name Flaubert--cute doggie!
