Little Hoodie searched the concrete jungle
for her pimp and dealer — Mister Wolf.
She turned some tricks on sleazy johns,
but what she needed most (a fix), she knew
that only Wolf could give. At last she found him
(gutted belly up) behind a dumpster — dead.
Beside him stood a clean-cut cop who said
“Your Granny sent me here to bring you back”,
But Little Hoodie, she was wrecked from
abstinence and syphilis; she grabbed his gun,
and shot him dead and then she hanged herself,
while Granny drowned a flask of gin and left.
An unfairy tale for Sherry at toads.
