"Screams..food for Dreams "

Oh..Mr. Wolf , you're such an animal !!!
Oh..Mr. Wolf , you're such an animal !!! | Source

" A night for the strangest things to happen "

It was that special night…

Of fright and delight….

The kind that most children enjoy…

Where monsters and clowns sleep under the bed...

and children with their favorite toy…

pull the covers over their head..

But this night was different …

Some still can’t believe it…

But it’s up to you to decide…

Four children set off for a night of screams..

but that's nothing compared to their future of dreams..

The costumes were chosen, and the children quite proud….

knew they were going to be the scariest and creepiest ones in the crowd..

The night was windy and a little bit cool….

Four friends met , down by the school...

There was a Werewolf , a Gothic Fairy, Vampire and a Clown..

The Clown had a smile which was turned upside down.

No one spoke, as they were all in disguise…

because that would have ruined the big surprise…

They went up to the houses yelling “ trick or treat “..

And each got something good to eat…

Oh, what a blast they had that night..

Running up and down the streets..

Filling their tummies with lots of sweets..

It was getting late and they were tired. .we should be in bed, they said..

But before we go, we need to know, which one of us is “Fred ?”

So they took off their masks…and to their surprise..

The Werewolf was Mason, the Gothic Fairy was Gabby…

And the Vampire was their best friend the little blonde Abby….

Oh !!! then you must be our friend Fred.. ..they said to the clown..

But ...when the clown started to remove his mask…

they discovered the truth…he wasn’t wearing one….

So where's Fred ?????

well I have the same problem when people look at me - they're waiting for me to take my mask off and stop clowning around - or they say Colin it's too early for Halloween - lol - but I love how you tease your readers (like I do actually -lol) and then set them up for a surprise - and I didn't see this one coming - of course I was hiding and shivering under the covers and afraid to look - lol

sending you good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 8:22

With Halloween gone and Fred still interesting as ever I like to reread and bring back the good times.This was the last Halloween I spent with my mom.I think everyone who came to the door we both asked are you Fred?Either they were pulling our leg or telling the truth I am not sure.One thing is for certain they all love candy and they were happy they knocked at our door.

A poem full of fun, but who's Fred?


kj force profile image

kj force 3 years ago from Florida Author

mizjo...there were four friends, only three removed their masks...the fourth dressed as a clown couldn't remove his mask because he wasn't wearing one..hence the twisted mystery of " who,what and where is Fred"...as the series progresses, it should become a bit clearer..hopefully this helped...


mizjo profile image

mizjo 3 years ago from New York City, NY

I had the weird notion of 'Freddie'. Wasn't he in those Halloween movies?


kj force profile image

kj force 3 years ago from Florida Author

mizjo..Yes " Freddie Kruger" was in the scary Halloween movies..however my " Fred" was merely a child who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time..nothing more..nothing less..just a misfortunate victim of a "seedy "side of society that exists in todays world...hope that clears the scenario for you...

Hi TheKjForce:

Who made me do it with her poetic delights:

Fred, Fred was so well fed on sweets

He/she couldn’t help but smiling cause they were so pleased

They all called him/her because it was true

A smiling was the real clue

But alas her/he was overweight

Cause sweet things make you go ape in the night

So Fred slept till just about 2 am

And then made whoopee to sweeten the gem

He turned into Abby the monk

To make amends for his consumption

Of sweet things and their assumptions

That Fred was Ted or perhaps Ed

What mysteries we weave in poetic delight.

Sorry long winded as we tell tales in the Aussie desert, that go on and on and on....

kj force 3 years ago from Florida Author
