Hey There, Little Red Riding Hood....

"From this story
 one learns that children 
Especially young girls

Pretty, well bred, and genteel,

 Are wrong to listen to just anyone...

And it's not at all strange
If a wolf ends up eating them.
I say a wolf, but not all wolves
Are exactly the same.
Some are perfectly charming
Not loud, or brutal, or angry
But tame, pleasant and gentle,

Following young ladies
 into their homes;
  into their chambers, 

But watch out
 if you haven't learned
 that tame wolves
Are the most dangerous of all."

 -"Little Red Riding Hood" 

 Rosaleen and The Wolf
"The Company of Wolves"

" Little girls, this seems to say, 
never stop upon your way...
 never trust a stranger friend;
 No one knows how it will end...
As you're pretty, so be wise,
 wolves may lurk in every guise...
 Now as then, 'tis simple truth, 
sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth."
 "The Company Of Wolves"

On a less serious note...

"Lil' Red Riding Hood"

But wait...
 There's more!

Remember folks,
there's always two sides
to every story!
