Halloween Poetic Hijinks
The full moon rises high in the sky
On wings of leather, the vampire fly
Its Halloween and across the land
Walks ghouls with powers on command.
Shuffling through the streets deserted
Zombies have been recently converted
Born in a lab from a disease so foul
Created by a doctor with a scowl.
Designed to control the people boom
Instead becomes the harbinger of doom.
Mindless brainless creatures bold
Neither short nor fat nor young nor old.
Hereditary curse becomes true
in the face of danger new
Painful transformation in the night
Rears up a beast full of might.
Teeth bared and claws so sharp
A werewolf tearing through the tarp
From a skinny man scared and small
A snarling beast over 7 feet tall.
Into the zombies he shreds and rips
Arms and legs and zombie lips
Scatter across the deserted street
Now nothing left but cooling meat.
Howling his victory and defiance loud
Against the man made ghastly crowd
Supernatural against man made
The zombie horde begins to fade.
Watching the carnage from on high
The vampire heaves a sigh
Not this year, perhaps the next
Havoc on Halloween, he can wreck.
