Halloween - Poem by Della Perry
Have you ever walked through a graveyard in the dead of night?
I tell you if you try it you will get a fright.
One night it was Halloween and no stars were in the sky
Just a large full moon watching like a gigantic eye!
I had to rush home, the hour was getting late
Probably a load of bloody peas piled on my plate!
Just half an hour ago I had left my mate.
As i walked along, there were sounds, I was scared,
I was beginning to wish the taxi I'd shared.
I heard a swoosh, a cackle, in my throat came a lump
Then a bang and a bump! Boy did I jump!
I thought I saw a tail of a wolf on the prowl
I could smell a foul stench then came the howl!
I stopped in my tracks next to a gnarled old tree
I wondered if that demon wolf were looking for me.
I squinted my eyes to help see in the mist
My stomach was turning, beginning to twist!
I saw two yellow eyes, round the bushes they peered
Calm down, I whispered, this is just weird!
If I hurry, be quick, I can run and flee
Maybe get home in time for my tea,
Glad to eat those nasty green peas.
Thinking of food if I didn't beat the beast
I might end up as main course in his feast!
I started to run, I started to cry
I felt like I was trapped in a web, I was the fly!
I caught my foot, on the floor I fell,
The ground was damp, had a terrible smell
I looked up and yellow eyes were up in the tree
But as it came closer, it was just a black cat looking at me,
Wondering why I was covered in wee!
