Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

  • 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 Grandmamma 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 Grandmamma was small and tough,
  • And Wolfie wailed, "That's not enough!
  • I haven't yet begun to feel
  • That I have had a decent meal!"
  • He ran around the kitchen yelping,
  • "I've got to have a second helping!"
  • Then added with a frightful leer,
  • "I'm therefore going to wait right here
  • Till Little Miss Red Riding Hood
  • Comes home from walking in the wood."
  • He quickly put on Grandma's clothes,
  • (Of course he hadn't eaten those).
  • He dressed himself in coat and hat.
  • He put on shoes, and after that
  • He even brushed and curled his hair,
  • Then sat himself in Grandma's chair.
  • In came the little girl in red.
  • 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 Grandmamma
  • She's going to taste like caviar.
  •  
  • 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
  • To tell me what BIG TEETH 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 whips a pistol from her knickers.
  • She aims it at the creature's head
  • And bang bang bang, she shoots 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 hood upon her head.
  • She said, "Hello, and do please note
  • My lovely furry wolfskin coat."
Roald Dahl, Revolting Rhymes

EVERYTHING ON IT
Poem and Drawing by Shel Silverstein
  • I asked for a hot dog
  • With everything on it,
  • And that was my big mistake,
  • ‘Cause it came with a parrot,
  • A bee in a bonnet,
  • A wristwatch, a wrench, and a rake.
  • It came with a goldfish,
  • A flag, and a fiddle,
  • A frog, and a front porch swing,
  • And a mouse in a mask —
  • That’s the last time I ask
  • For a hog dog with everything.
