“…gather your witches, vampires and bats,
spiders, ghosties and arch-backed black cats.
Stand them together with goblins and ghouls,
then stack them up high on the backs of pack mules,
Or store them in boxes way up in your attic,”
the skeleton in my closet was downright emphatic.
“There’s no room in here,” he said with a flair.
“Now that Nature’s done dying last summer’s fair hair
and Thanksgiving’s approaching,
there’s no time to waste!
So I’ll wrap fall’s leftovers
while you make great haste
adorning the house with turkeys and corn.
Don’t worry ’bout me. I’ll not feel forlorn
as nighttime turns frosty and moon’s silvery beams
shed light on the road to more wintery themes.
Just promise you’ll leave the door open a crack
so I can scare Santa
and snatch up his sack.”
HOPE YOUR HALLOWEEN WAS SPOOKTACULAR!
