She said 'Are you a Wolf?'
And, at once, it seemed to me,
That a Wolf was just the very thing
She wanted me to be!
I'm really quite a placid chap,
Not a great hit with the dames,
But that very simple phrase of hers
Made me want to play her games!
She was dressed in red, her hair was blonde,
And she showed a lot of skin!
'I'll be your Little Red Riding Hood'
She said with a wicked grin.
She knew of a cosy little spot;
Well, of course, she would.
It was at the far end of the park;
She described it as her 'wood'!
We stopped playing fairy stories
Quite soon, would you believe!
We reverted to the Bible,
Ending up as Adam and Eve!
Your poem made me smile this morning. I loved the twist in the ending!
Here's mine. Both of our "Reds" were a bit different than the original: http://inthecornerofmyeye.blogspot.com/2010/08/grandma-and-little-red.html

Perfection! Especially the Flies of Fancy.
It is always a treat to visit you and see the creativity flow.
Just too much temptation, I guess...
Ah haa! Your work often makes laugh. This is great!
This also made me smile this morning!
I tried posting a comment here last night and don't see it. I enjoyed your updated take on this! Also fun to read your profile. Look for my effort on Red Ridding Hood on the We Write Poems site!
Adam and Eve??? Funny! (Did she eat the apple?)
Fun variation on the story.
the tweek at the end is cute
Sultry little red riding eve... ;)
nice variation..and enjoyed reading...with a smile on my face....thanks for this
That naughty little Red. Judging from the description, I'd gladly fall prey to her suggestion. And I like your Adam-and-Eve ending. Thanks for sharing! :)
I love twisted endings!
