In my love for you my sweet
not a worry comes to mind
Where each seed that has been planted
there are flowers now to find

Wading through the grain fields
is a walk down lovers lane
Even though I broke my leg
still, there is no pain

Trodding on to Grandma's house
with horn-o’-plenty's yield
My crutch wedged 'tween the cobblestones
fracturing Achilles heel

Then I came upon a pig's retreat
built of straw n’ sticks n’ mortar
When suddenly a wolf appeared
asking for Grandmother

"Aren't you just a bit confused",
I asked the feral wanderer
"Grandma's house is three miles back
if you’re looking for food to plunder"

"‘Tis food indeed I seek little lass”!
...the furry foe did say
“Just a peek inside your basket
and you’ll soon be on your way”!

So I set the tricky timer
and stepped back a pace or two
The Wolf  popped open the basket
…left nothing but his shoes


...just bein' Bluesy
