homo homini lupus

By: Duck


PROMPT: WILD

there is a wild

wolf that lives somewhere in the forest

and eats little pigs all in threes.

it could rip out your throat

in a second

and its howl could cut out your knees.

it's angry and lonely and

knows only the kill

and its footsteps are painted with blood.

it's a storybook wolf,

a monster of myth,

and it will drag you into the mud.

that's the whisper they tell

to their children,

those wolves who live in the woods,

to warn them about

the tall hairless beasts

that kill all their red riding hoods.

I love the dark-ish but somewhat silly mood of this piece. It takes an actual realistic spin on all of these classic fairy tales, and does so in a way that gives me the chuckles. Good work (wo)man.

Capitalization so it look prettier. Otherwise not much else to say about this since it's just a funny little piece with nice creative ideas :D
