What you eat

The tale was never told of what
happened to them that
burned the ginger house down
with the wicked woman
that foul cannibal
they called a witch

just breadcrumbs that no-one followed
except a girl that thought it odd
that even the crows would not
touch those crumbs

in the dark dark wood
she saw the two
Hansel had glowing green eyes
Gretel fangs like a cursed beast

and in their hands
ribs of that old ginger bread witch...

what if, what you eat
you become....
