Malevolence in the Woods? (En Route Phalut West Bengal)


A Winter Wolf in time, silently dreaming of a rhyme
Where Red Riding Hood’s happily swaying in the woods,
While a sudden storm paints the turquoise sky grey,
Will he choose to fake trust for a delicious and easy prey?

But Red’s got her own plan, this forest was her land
She always disliked the norm; she had created the storm,
When the wolf sat beside her, she chuntered stories from her life,
Was this an alluring prologue or will she use the cloistered knife?
