House Of Horror

Have you ever had a rendezvous with a bat?
Well I have, now what do you think of that!
Well it all kicked off, this particular night,
I'm feeling quite sleepy, with cocoa held tight,
I hear this commotion just out in the hall,
My Scottie dog, well he's having a ball!
What's going on, out there in the dark?
I hear this sharp scuttle, and he starts to bark.
Now he's faced many rodents, he once caught a rat,
But horror of horrors, he's chasing a bat!
With legs all a tremble, I duck for cover,
Beneath a large cushion, my hearts all a quiver!
As he flew past, I gave a loud scream!
It looked just like a clip from a Hollywood scene.
Straight through to the kitchen he headed with glee,
Hey! Who do you think we are, the Addams family!
I head for the window with a gulp and a yell,
He embraced the night sky, like a bat out of hell!
Don't call me Susie, Joyce or Patricia,
I'm thinking of changing my name to Morticia!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
