V for Visiting Gramps

she was going to her gramp’s
not wearing red nor with a hood
delicately dressed a little risky
for passing through the woods

brought along reinforcements
her sister and the neighbor’s girl
to be safe but not a requirement
were two lunch-boxes of edibles

no adults to accompany them
nor any weapons as a defence
resolved to reach their destination
hoping bad wolves not marauding

if wolves were to approach them
they were then in for a surprise
neighbor’s girl a karate exponent
they were not known to be nice
