Halloween Approaches....[short; Scary? ; Gross? ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

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!
