A Wolf's Fiasco

A hungry wolf came down the mountains.
tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat
He heard the sound of footsteps of an express messenger.

It's in the bag! -- he thought and awaited at the
center of the road widely opening his big mouth.

tat tat tat
The messenger jumped into his mouth
without glancing aside and run through his body,
then, with a pop, getting out of the
buttocks,
the messenger left there quickly
tat tat tat tat
.....

Looking back, the wolf murmured.
"Regretful, I should have worn a breechclout."
