The Dead Will Walk on Halloween!

 


Ghouls

There's plenty of ghouls

on land and sea

some drowned

others just tried to flee

from a life

long and hard

or a crime they didn't foresee

watery deaths

or bones

those murderers

buried deep

terra Earth

will always be discreet

but on Halloween

those spirits will arise

to remind the living

that evil thrives

and is always close by.

It's almost time for the "WEP"

  1. I suspect (hope) that my natural perversity would carry though after death, and I would walk any damn time I felt like it.
    Love your poem though.

    1. Too many ghouls for my taste but those who've met an untimely death deserve their chance to speak too! :)
