Hansel and Gretel Retold
Come let us tell you a story,
about a boy and a girl,
who lived in a very Grimm world.
They be named Hansel and Gretel,
abandoned in the woods,
like damaged, unwanted goods.
But fear not dear listeners,
so Hansel didn't get lost,
a trail of biscuit crumbs he tossed.
Alas Hansel's plan failed,
the crumbs had vanished,
into the darkness the children were banished.
Suddenly their spirits were lifted,
by the sight of a cottage out of the ordinary,
made from gingerbread and adorned with confectionery.
A cackling witch offered them treats,
but she was far from fair,
so snatched them into her lair.
Feasting on them was her aim,
she sought to fatten them up on sweets,
preferring kids' bones clad in meat.
The sibling's death day dawned,
yet the thought of kid casserole they weren't loving,
so they pushed the hag into the oven!
