The three little piggies were slaughtered
when they tried to walk Little Red Riding Hood home.
They went to the house where the Big Bad Wolf lived,
and he huffed and puffed and burned them all inside.
The thick smoke stung the backs of their throats
and they tasted the ash as it mixed with their blood.
Benzocaine smeared on the tips of their tongues,
they tried to scream for help,
but all the kings horses and all the king's firemen
couldn't extinguish that blaze.
And Little Red Riding Hood went with Alice
to wonderland to play with knives and scissors,
she scraped the inside of her forehead clean
and nailed herself to a wall in the name of God.
Then Humpty Dumpty fell from his throne,
and cracked open on the concrete floor.
His egg-shell skull was blasted to bits
and yolk streamed into that industrial drain he had installed in the floor.
Now the fairyland sewer system
smells like rotten eggs
and burnt bacon.
