they say
that it's not safe in this urban forest
because I'm a little girl with a basket
and the big bad wolf will surely get me
but I don't believe in the big bad wolf
his paws seem to slide right off the edge of my
little red hood.
They say that I'm vulnerable alone on the street at night
but I'm a woman an adult
I'll be alright.
