Twisted Bedtime Tales...

Three little pigs having a party
chowing down some curds and whey
The wolf came knocking, but they were rocking
and they didn't want to play

Let me in, said the wolf, Let me in
I'm hungry for some meat
We'd let you in, you big, bad wolf
but we know it's us you'd eat

So they sent the spider out to see
told her chase the wolf away
But the wolf squashed the spider, and sat down beside her
"it's not happening today."

Now, the wolf is still at the door
and the piggies are swilling some wine
He's banging and knocking, but the piggies are rocking
He's like alright, that's just fine

He decided to climb down the chimney
The piggies built up a huge flame
it burned his ass, he yelled you got no class
which soon had them calling him names

Let me in, let me in, said the wolf
I'll knock your door right down
"Aw, hit the bricks, with those weak-assed kicks"
"You're nothing but a clown"

Boy Blue was playing some tunes
Miss Muffet was dancing a jig
Jack Spratt using his thumbs, to beating Bongo drums
rocking the three little pigs

Finally here come the cops
"You guys are making way too much noise"
He arrested them all, gave them their call
Miss Muffet bailed the piggy boys

So the moral of this tale
Is don't try to crash the soiree
Wait for an invite on next Saturday nite
Or you will be soooo sorry

Last few words: 
Just a little type of tale I used to tell my niece and nephews at bedtime. I used to get them laughing and we made so much noise that my sister would have to come in and throw me out so they would settle down. So, we started them going to bed a half-hour earlier so that by regular bedtime, we would be done! They missed Uncle Guy's twisted tales when I moved out! This one is for Julie, my first little niece!

I think you could set this poem to music, if you are so inclined! I like the light, fanciful tone to it. I just read your "last few words". I think it is sweet and the memories you will cherish. I hope you keep in touch with them!

with music, but I guess it might be possible. I do keep in touch with my niece especially, not so much the nephews, but we have a laugh every now and then, remembering those days! Hugs, Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
