The house is quiet, only my whisper is heard...
oh, I guess I'm such a nerd,
are you hanging on my every word?
OK good, come on, let's go,
Shadows drifting, so discreet,
fowl breath, a cut out sheet,
hard to move these trembling feet
a waiting guest, for me to greet?
not a trick, I hope a treat!?!
Perhaps the reaper comes this way
he knows of this, a game I play?
waking Crowley, where he lay,
I grab ahold the banister,
and step around the stair valute,
the air grows dark and thick again,
as everything is put in mute,
until a bell, I pause to think,
perhaps a playing flute?
Prolly not & that's real cute,
inquiries of candied loot?
I wait to hear again, a ding,
the joy of laughter it will bring,
the songs again my heart will sing,
I grip the rail, I'm petrified
a ghostly ghoul,
me, has spied
I move away,
from where I hide,
Shhhhhh be quiet,
My legs are heavy,
I slowly stepped,
up I crept
tears I wish,
that I had wept,
I move my hand,
away are swept,
no way for me to leave, get out,
they'd never hear me scream & shout
trudging on with wary doubt,
I bite my lip,
I moan & pout,
in every step, as I grow brave,
climbing up, a darkened grave,
with every step, my soul to save,
Very dramatic poet,
emmmm thanks, read on,
I reach the top in my suspense,
ahead I say, in my defense,
sorry if you're feeling tense,
I open up the door ahead,
filling me & you with dread,
dragging knuckles, telluric bed,
I look, in horror, shrilling,
a glowing face, chilling,
peeking, must be the one,
... am seeking!
I chuckle at the sounds of creaking,
bones & boards beneath my feet
so sneaking up?
you lived in hell?
so I give up
hey, where's the bell?
Oh hear it is, that's just swell,
I know right?
Thanks for finding it though,
Jumping out, you give a start,
I feel it pump inside my heart,
looks as if I need black art,
Your not afraid?
you silly girl, let me give
a bony hand, sweeps & swirls
tattered sheets they creep & twirl
You do your best
to discourage guests
I'm prepared for any scary test
Yes I'm different from the rest,
& by the way,
you mustn't know that I am blessed
I'm not leaving, you may have guessed
Some pumpkins happy
some are scary
the children here,
they shan't be wary
I am not, no I am nary
this may be a fateful twist
but by the gods I have been kissed
sorry but your aim, it missed
I know that I look a witch
as I move my nose & give a twitch
but my dear, I pulled a switch
I raise my hands, I curse your words
as spirits cry, my voice, is heard
I bind you here, your soul I gird,
I cast a spell, hogtie your feet
take a bite, it's really sweet
yes my dear please have a treat
do you mind, if I have a seat?
I call my spoon, my kettle stirring,
as he speaks,
the words are spurring,
I laugh aloud, as kitty's purring,
supernatural events, occurring,
as caldrons bubble, broomsticks fly,
& Frankenstein went walking by,
his Mummy gives a wistful sigh,
Your look of shock, a priceless one,
like someone just removed the sun,
I dare not say, a silly pun?
No it's very good,
Oh hey thanks friend,
As breaking glass of aged pane's
& your attempts to stop me,
all in vain,
In rattlin' of my heavy chains
from what they weigh
as my skeleton comes out to play
protecting children as you prey,
wave a wand, a hand & down I slay,
No, go on...
The werewolf howling at the moon
growling baying, softly croons,
a clown I think might be a goon,
the wicked hour coming soon,
cackling witches laugh & snicker
spirits run & candles flicker
demons plot, giggle...
they fight & bicker,
I must admit their kinda spooky
Some are cute and kinda kooky,
To me look like a bunch of groupies,
Ha ha, good one poet!
Oh, well thanks!
I give my stick another flick,
I guess I gotta few more tricks!?
as fires dance in flaming licks,
Ewwww, I like it...
Halloween no time for fools,
the banshee comes with gaurding ghoul,
we're taking him to scaring school
Oh very cool,
yeah I made some room,
You can ride with banshee there,
the one with all the crazy hair,
you'll be alright just don't stare,
It's not as if I just don't care,
The unwanted speaks,
Well my dear, I'd say we're even
but temporary guess I'm leavin'
and your magic I might believin
pretty good, you think you won
congrats again, it's been real fun
a spell like yours can be undone
Oh I see, you think my best?
wait a sec, I'll get undressed
something here I must confess
Most these monsters are my friends
on whom my back I can depend
do your thing, with time you spend
That's okay, you go ahead
I don't wanna end up dead
and now I see, an empty bed
& your face is just filled with dread
boy you're really turning red
must be all the ink I bled
is this just a story?
filled with rhymes,
& kinda gory,
finding out is mandatory,
Now I jump out,
- I just say BOO
I guess, you see-
the tricks on you!
Awww thanks for the love,
yeah sure do love this time of year,
lotsa fun, this one,
Enjoy a candy,
& thanks for coming!
