She is Queen

She is Queen of the Forest.

The children run,
The children pant,
The children cry,
But not for long.

She stalks the pretty ones,
She hunts the little ones,
She snaps the scrumptious ones,
One by one by one.

She is Queen of the Forest.

Afraid to stop,
Afraid to pause,
Afraid to cease,
Lest they be ceased.

Lost ones, lost ones,
Come out to play
Lost ones, lost ones,
What do you say?
She whispers among the graves.

Rules, rules, rules
Important games have
Important rules.
Do you remember
What I say?

She lies in wait
For the plumpest one
Gobbling her up
Snap, snap
Snip, crack

Down goes the bones,
A little pile
Reminding them that She

She is the Queen of this Forest.
