Beware Of Ghosts (limerick)

Updated on February 20, 2016

Most spirits of Halloween night

Are now in their beds sleeping tight

But sweets seen on telly

Those treats made of jelly

Their ghosts in my belly now fight

      I swore that I'd just take a swig

      of that drink that I truly dig

      yet I drank more

      bought out the store

      It's the last time I drink like a pig.

      Love the photo, mh. Great Job!
