Friend Not Foe


United States

Most people know how Hansel and Gretel goes

You think you know what the old lady’s intentions imposed

But have they ever thought about the story if the lady was nice

Not being described as cold as ice

You might be surprised at what you come to find

Who knows because maybe she was actually sweet and kind

Maybe the old lady wasn’t looking for something to eat

She just felt alone and wanted some new friends to meet

Her reputation might have been wrongfully tainted

Because with no real friends was she acquainted

Try thinking positively next time

When you read about a villain in a rhyme

It could be fun to come up with 

A new story and storyline with no deserved comeuppance
