Snow white and little red riding hood
Defied the laws of fairytales
By sharing a long merry dance
deep in the enchanted forest,
just near the gingerbread house.
They tangoed around toadstools
Delicately dodging
Fire breathing dragons
Wicked witches
And angry elves
Until one of them
stepped on a glass slipper
And the music
stopped
As the blood and lies began to run
