Halloween Approaches....[Short; Scary? ; Gross? ]


Halloween suddenly now approaches.
Let me eat some crawling roaches.
Let me kill some football coaches.
(And let me not forget the cute cheerleader.
To my pit bull I can feed her.)

Boys and girls will knock for candy.
I'll lock them in a cage that's handy,
and feed them, instead, some stew that's sandy,
made with rat tails and chicken legs
and wiggly worms and spider eggs.

I can't help my lustful craving for BLOOD,
which each October through my brain does flood,
like a scarlet explosion from a plump rose bud.
My knives are sharpened, my teeth are grating.
The porch light is on, my freezer's waiting.
I'll only harvest what I can handle,
luring them in using treats and a glowing candle.
They get their treats but then they are MINE!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i always liked halloween when i was a kid. i also liked Vincent Price scary movies etc. now that i only give out candy at halloween (well maybe i also eat a little bit) AND i have a hidden dark side to me (do you believe that?) and i like to amuse myself with poetry creation, isn't it NORMAL to write this? ? in the original i made 'BLOOD' be in red type. p.s. i saw no kids at my door this year; darn!
