I recently made it to 1,000 followers on Twitter. That's not many in the grand scheme of things - have you seen how many followers some celebs have? I weep. But it's a milestone to me, so to celebrate I've unearthed one of my old poems for you.
When I was little (Okay, very little. Okay, younger), my Mum would often read to me from Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes. One of my favourites was 'Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf'. You can read that poem online, but I suspect it'd be better if you buy the book.
I think I wrote the following poem somewhere in the region of 10 years ago. It's a send-up of the Revolting Rhymes style, and imagines what life might be like from the wolf's perspective. I've even tried to use the same number of syllables in each line as Roald Dahl did.
Enjoy! And if you like it, go nose around the rest of my website. I have a lot more writing where that came from.
