Poetry month #10 – Wolf in sheep’s clothing (for Lohr)

I – Hati

It’s the story of a girl child
Who thought she was a witch
And the story of a boy child
Who thought she was a bitch
She mistook his close attention
For a fairy tale convention –
So she wrote him out the cheque.

But he’s not one to benefit,
His story’s got a sob to it.
He’s always just a conduit
The funds are there just resubmit
His pen ran out so do omit
The date.
To memory he will commit
And don’t forget you will acquit
His crimes.

He’s a lone wolf.

It’s the story of a good girl
Who thought she was a saint
And the story of a bad boy
Who thought he’d make her faint
She mistook his ease within his lair
For a cosy snuggle on the chair
So she hung up her winter coat

But he’s not one to benefit,
His story’s got a sob to it.
He’s always just a conduit
The funds are there just resubmit
His pen ran out so just omit
The date.
To memory he will commit
And don’t forget you will acquit
His crimes.

He’s a lone wolf.

He gets the job done every time
He’s got a bevy of contenders on the line
As the alpha in the pack
He can always turn his back
On one and all.
(And put them on ice.)

He’s a lone wolf,
Very nice,
A lonely old wolf.

II – Skoll

They met
In a hotel bar; sipping at scotches
She slipped her foot out of her stiletto
Which was when he knew he was going
To get lucky;
In the elevator he lost a few buttons
And the door was barely shut before
She was on her knees.
Come the full moon,
He’s gone.

III – Fenrir

A sentimental journey through the wool of memory
The pastoral green valley with a shepherd boy trainee
But even on this summer’s day the hunting pack is on its way
It’s the shepherd who’s the wolf in sheep’s clothing
(He was reconnoitering), that wolf in sheep’s clothing.
You’ve got to feed the cubs, you know.
