The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf
The Wolf took the stand in his own defence
His shock and sheer horror was truly immense.
He was accused of the most dreadful crime
And it looked like he would do some real time
It all began deep in the dark forest
He saw a girl that looked like a florist.
She had some food that looked real good
She told him her name was red riding hood.
She was off to see her gran who was sick
She couldn’t stop as she had to be quick
“How very rude not to stop” wolf said
“I will teach her or her name’s not red”.
He thought to himself “mmmmm I will play a trick
He ran to granny’s and boy was he quick
Gran was asleep but she suddenly woke
He explained and soon she was in on the joke
Then there came a soft knock at the door
Granny ran fast and hid under the floor.
The wolf dressed up and jumped into the bed
He said “Oh please come in my sweet little red”
Little Red riding hood entered the house
She tiptoed in and was quiet as a mouse.
She looked at her granny and got a surprise
“Oh granny” she said “you have such big eyes.”
Red sat on the bed and moved more close
She was bit confused but then she froze
“You aren’t granny” and she screamed for help
“Oh please calm down” the wolf said with a yelp.
In from the forest came the woodcutter
“To be honest “wolf said “he looked like a nutter”.
He grabbed the wolf by his neck and declared
“Tell me where gran is or you will be scared”
“Tell me now or I will give you what for
The wolf shouted “she is under the floor”.
Granny came out looking shock and confused
She seemed befuddled, upset and bemused.
“Please Gran explain you were in on the joke”
Oh No” she cried and collapsed with a stroke.
“That’s the true story” wolf said with a plea.
But the jury replied guilty and smiled with glee.
