mood: cold..at least we perish together?

A/N: Once upon a time, fleurdeliser requested Crowley (Good Omens), Hansel and Gretel. Finally it's here.
You're still welcome to put requests for that fairy tale/folklore drabble meme. I might even get around to your prompt before 2012!

I'm using font-family: trebuchet ms; anyone knows what font LJ uses?



Better to share the last bite, you say?

Your wish is my command,  
                       humble woodcutter, 
                              Sir* 

A half loaf of bread makes 
                       eight thin slices
                              that’s breakfast for four
                                                
Sure you don’t want four thick slices?

                       No? 

Midday comes, stomachs rumble, 
                      Oh, how those children grumble! 

Those bright eyes soon turn accusing,
                      then dim
                                                
They will die first, you know,
                      and you will die
                             with your wife’s nagging 
                                    echoing in your ears

…but I do feel sorry for the poor** children.

* I’m not mocking you, good sir, why would you think so?

** No gingerbread house in this lifetime.

Hansel and Gretel [ Surlalune | Grimm comparison ]

In the most hilarious (and flattering, sort of) misinterpretation ever, rea_saint (without reading the A/N) thought the poem was about Jesus.

humble woodcutter --> carpenter
loaf of bread --> breaking bread --> feeding the five thousand
poor --> Blessed are the poor

Thanks, glad you like it =D

IMO the voice is kinda generic and not Crowley-esque, but oh well =/
