big & bad

the wolf was at the door,
he was at the door,
wanting more--
What do you do
but roll over & play dead,
dead as a doorknob
as they say--
But what do they say
about girls who invite
the wolf inside,
opening the door wide,
welcoming him in
for tea & a quickie?
take the love that you get,
even the big bad love,
& pass it around.

This week's music challenge to the Real Toads is "The Wolf Is Getting Married" by Sinead O'Connor.
