She sits under a big oak tree, playing all alone

Stranger walks toward her with an ice cream cone

Politely says “no thank you”; shows a toothless smile

Temptation got the best of that sweet, innocent child


He takes a few steps closer with the melting treat

She reaches out to take it, stumbling at his feet

Lifts her in the air with those big, muscular arms

Dusting off her clothing, while turning on his charm


Mama will be calling; says she has to go

Holding her so tightly, his evil eyes say “no”

“I was sent to fetch you”, hatched his devilish plan

Walks from that big oak tree clutching her small hand
