four endings and a continuing fairy tale

Now remain calm
I know how this ends
happy is in the exclusion zone
it's only the shoe that fits
The farmer takes a wife
the wife takes a child.
he fences his family in.
In a dark dark night
in a dark dark town
in a dark dark moment
the novitiate kills.
The cowboy
high in the saddle
rode over the sandhills
The bar fly dies
a shot of wild turkey
starts the rot.

Poor Hansel lost without Gretel
is alone in the forest
there's no trail of pebbles
he can't see the wood
for the talking trees.
