All Hallows Eve

All Hallows Eve


Once All Hallows Eve so scary

Hungry werewolf lurching hairy

With his sharpened claws came scratching

Firey eyed by my front door

Being the official greeter

I was sure a trick-or-treater

Wanted candy from the handy

Cut out pumpkin on the floor

But a vision only fleeting

Was not tricking, was not treating

But rose up and floated toward me

As I stood amid its roar

Now the passing of each season

Terrifys me, and with reason

By the ghastly ghost afloating…forever more

OMG, Ann, you have become Poe reincarnated. That's one scary werewolf creature. Keep your front door locked and double bolted. If he/it were to trick you, m'dear, you would be the treat!

I sense a little of the poet A.E.Poe in this writing, quoth the raven never more.

Yes indeed my humble apology for not commenting sooner, slap me please I am so deserving of that at least. LoL but don't let that wolf near me, he/she would leave more than just a scratch.

My kidlet is too small for scohol yet, but on shopping in general, I take him a lot. But some days I just crave the freedom of cruising through a store on my own timeline. The things you appreciate when you're a Mom! LOL
