I was thinking about nursery rhyme’s involving wolves and this one sprang to mind. Why stories involving a wolf particularly? Because our dear ‘wolfie’ is probably a relative and so I was looking for inspiration!
As a side note it also makes me think of a 1970’s UK TV series called ‘Citizen Smith’ who’s lead character (played by Robert Lindsay) was also called ‘Wolfie’ 🙂
Anyway back to the nursery rhyme’s and the story of the Three Little Pigs. This reminds me so much of the sober community. How so? If you struggle on your own and build a house of straw or sticks then wolfie is likely to blow your house down. It was only when the three little pigs were all together in the house of bricks that he couldn’t blow it down. And so the story goes:
He then attempts to trick the pig out of the house by asking to meet him at various places, but is outwitted each time. Finally, the wolf resolves to come down the chimney, whereupon the pig catches the wolf in a cauldron of boiling water, slams the lid on, and cooks and eats him. Yum yum yum 😉
So safety in numbers it would seem! I’m all for that. Would anyone else in our little sober brick house like a piece of braised wolf? ‘Power to the People!’ indeed 🙂
