Hansel lost Gretal
he went to the store
bought some drumettes
began to explore...

Walked city streets
at a furious pace
an unbearable hunger
the drumettes he did taste...

Searching each pier
every one he explored
leaving a trail
of the bones, he ignored...

Mice disguised as men
scurried after his trail
now Gretal
are both, no more...
