"Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf", from Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl

As soon as Wolf began to feel

That he would like a decent meal.

He went and knocked on Grandma's door.

When Grandma opened it, she saw

The sharp white teeth, the horrid grin.

And Wolfie said : "May I come in ?"

Poor Grandmama was terrified,

"He's going to eat me up !" she cried.

And she was absolutely right.

He ate her up in one big bite.

But Grandmama was small and tough,

And Wolfie wailed "That's not enough !

"I haven't yet begun to feel

"That I have hat a decent meal !"

He ran around the kitchen yelping,

"I've got to have another helping !"

Then added with a frightful leer,

"I'm therefore going to wait right here

"Till Little Miss Red Riding Hood

He quickly put on Grandma's clothes,

(of course he hadn't eaten those.)

He dressed himself in a coat and hat.

 He put on shoes and after that

He even brushed and curled his hair,

She stopped. She stared. And then she said,

"What great big ears you have, Grandma"

"All the better to hear you with." the Wolf replied.

"What great big eyes you have, Grandma." said Little Red Riding Hood.

"All the better to see you with." the Wolf replied.

He sat there watching her and smiled.

He thought, I'm going to eat this child.

Compared with her old Grandmama

She's going to taste like caviare.

 

Then Little Red Riding Hood said, "But Grandma,

what a lovely great big furry coat you have on."

"That's wrong !" cried Wolf. "Have you forgot(en)

"To tell me what BIG TEEH I've got ?

"Ah, well, no matter what you say,

"I'm going to eat you anyway."

The small girl smiles. One eyelid flickers.

She aims it at the creature's head

And bang bang bang, she shoot him dead.

 

A few weeks later, in the wood,

I came across Miss Riding Hood.

But what a change ! No cloak of red.

no silly hook upon her head.

She says "Hello, and do please note

"My lovely furry WOLFSKIN COAT. [...]
