Bedtime stories

I tell you what, those Ladybird Tales

Are a gruesome lot.

I read them all when I was wee,

But I must have forgot. 🤔

The Gingerbread Man, well he gets munched,

And so does Chicken Licken.

But toddler doesn’t seem to care.

You’d think they would be stricken. 😮

Hansel and Gretel. Another good one

That’s far from being tame.

That story would see any modern

Horror put to shame. 😱
