HAPPY HALLOWEEN!




IT’S EVIL WE BRING



I await the hour

the darkest of night.

For under the brightest moon

I venture out to spread doom.



This warning I give.

Beware the wolf’s howl,

the swoosh of the witch’s flight,

and take heed the flutter of the bats wing.



Listen closely my dear

to the crunch of desiccated leaves

and the scurry of startled rodents

for I am as close as you fear.



Listen to the whispers.

Relish the cold.

Let it give you comfort

but remember, I am most bold.



Carry your lantern high

Protect its light.

But walk with haste

and confidence this night.



Just be prepared

To run for your life.

For I am swift

On this most blood thirsty night.



Forget the silver, and holy water has no sting.

For on All Hallows Eve

the monsters own the night

and it’s evil we bring!

  1. Well done!
    For authors, those monsters are bad reviews and no amount of silver will stop them.

  4. Clever! I have a gr-son we call Jamie the Monster. He is 20 months old and terrorizes the dogs, his mother. Big brother is the only one who understands him.
