Cry Wolf!

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!


Some people see two flies and see two flies!
Some people see two flies and fantasize!
A flight of fancy! Just a bit of fun!
Two flies on the Riviera in the sun!

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

(you should have received an invite to view my blog - by blogger - in your email yesterday)

Perfection! Especially the Flies of Fancy.
It is always a treat to visit you and see the creativity flow.

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!

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! :)
