It's the Witch's Night

Their cackles will raise your hackles

called laughter

but isn't funny

goosebumps and chills

such a haunting sound

reminds all that

the devil's evil abounds

and her appearance

is so out of sorts

her green skin and brown warts

an ugly sight

scraggly hair, missing teeth,

red bulging eyes,

doesn't lend confidence

not this Halloween night

don't point or draw attention

for her cruse may be real

if you catch her watching

she's sizing you up

it might seem like fun

but it's masquerade night

and those in costume

are the ones hiding

but the witch

is locked onto you

and only morning will tell

for it's dawn when you'll know

if her curse worked well

for you'll be alive

and not floating face down in the well.

  1. Ooooh.
    Spooky and fun. And as an aside, why (with magic at their disposal) do witches choose to rock the ugly look?
    It would surely be much easier to work from camouflage?

    1. From what I understand, the more black magic they use the uglier they get. I'm sure there was a time when they used that magic to make themselves beautiful, but as with everything in life, time runs out. LOL

  2. Enjoyed your pre-Halloween observation of witches! Such fun! Looking forward to reading all the SPOOKY and Hair-raising posts for the SCREAM

  3. Yup. Looks like the witches don't bother with beauty spas. It works for them, LOL.
