A Twisted Tale

My mind’s take on Hansel and Gretel,

A Twisted Tale

Two little siblings
One plump and one frail
Went out for a walk
Leaving crumbs as a trail

The crumbs were a path
To lead the way home
But the birds ate the crumbs
And they were lost and alone

They stopped at a house
Made of cookies and pie
To quick ask directions
And then say goodbye

But the old witch that lived there
She threw them in a pot
And hung them over the fire
Until the water got hot

She cooked them up long
And seasoned them right
And ate them for dinner
That very night.

There is a reason I don’t write stories for children. I would end up giving them nightmares.
