Little Red-Cap by Jacob GrimmLittle Red Riding Hood, who is she?
A girl in a red cloak, off to visit her granny
Through the woods she goes, merrily on her way
Wary of the big bad wolf, hunting for his prey
Granny looks peculiar, smells and sounds funny too
Laying in her bed, is this story true?
Or a metaphor for Paedophilla? A young girl, Red Riding Hood, prepubescent
A wolf, a predator, in sheeps clothing, hunting for the young, ever present
It must have been rife, in the middle ages, out in the open
Not hidden like today, kept secret, never spoken
Through institutions, charities, secret societies, taking them from their loving home
Trafficking children, causing suffering, just like it was in ancient Rome
Many stories by the Brothers Grimm, have esoteric insight
And if one understands the meaning, one can be filled with fright
As the message can be seen, if one knows where to look
And read between the lines, of every Grimm book. 👍🐯
