‘TIS ALL HALLOWS WEEK…

…and there is still much to do,
like weaving webs,
stringing skulls,
and refining shrieks of,
BOO!
BOO!
BOO!

True…

the pumpkin has been carved,
skeletons are out of the closet,

ghouls’ drool drapes o’re the doorways,
and dried maggots marinate in zombies’ vomit.

But…

There’s the great ball

in the great hall!

The great party

for one and all,

where goblins, ghosts, and mummies

strut their stuff and fill their tummies.

Do not fear…

for there is still time to get into the groove
and practice your Thriller and Monster Mash moves…


Don your tap shoes.
Jiggle your bones.
Jangle your chains.
Howl. Sob. Groan.

Flap your arms wildly.
Wail Woo-woo-wooooo.

But beforehand, check the flame
under your bubbling spider slime stew.

Ahhhhh…

Breathe in deeply…

Savour that delectable stench…

Go ahead, have a taste.
Bon appétit,
as they say in French.

Now, if you’ll excuse me,
I must be on my way.
There’s still much to prepare for
on this pre-hallows-eve Thursday.

❤ HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL ❤
Stay Safe and Be Well

    Spookalicious, Donna! 😀
    Here in Oz we don’t celebrate Halloween. Well, when I say that, I should say that up until about ten years ago there was nothing at all. But then the big supermarkets decided they could make a real killing in commercialism if they got into the whole “trick or treat” thing – chocolates, and every sort of candy/lolly you can imagine. and, as they say, “The rest is history.” Some people do decorate their houses, but on the whole, it’s all about making money.

  4. Very scary stuff. I don’t think I would like to come to a Halloween party at your house! Happy Halloween to you.

    That cauldron looks nasty, but you look great in the witch’s costume! Though I must say, you have very tiny hands compared to your feet!

    Written and celebrated in DGLW style. Alas, Halloween has been cancelled here but that didn’t stop my husband from buying fun-sized candy.
