The Real Story of Goldilocks part 1


Real Story of Goldilocks Part 2

‘I only went to look around

    And no one was in sight.

A table seemed to have been set

    Upon a cloth of white.


‘I noticed that there were three stools

     And porridge in three bowls,

 And all I’d had to eat today

     Were Mummy’s home-made rolls.


'The porridge had been freshly made.

     It’s smell was so divine – mmmm.

The thought of breakfast in that house –

     It suited me just fine!


'I ate the porridge in the bowl -

     Oh, how it tasted good.

One stool I broke: it’s leg came off,

     But you can soon mend wood.


‘I know I should have come to school,

     But what I did instead,

Was to go upstairs and, feeling tired,

      I slept upon a bed.


'I woke with such a dreadful start

     By some ferocious bears.

I didn’t wait, but at great speed,

    I scampered down the stairs.


'Out in the woods I quickly ran

      As fast as fast could be.

Well, surely you would understand

     If you were only me!


'I heard the bears running behind

   And I increased my speed.

It's amazing just how fast you'll run

   When there's a pressing need!’  


The children now were laughing loud,

    And Goldilocks was too,

For she was good at telling tales,

    And none of them were true.


The teacher said: ‘You wicked girl.  

    Do you take me for a fool?

The work you’ve missed, you still will do,

     By staying after school.’
