Screaming children

Parading from house to house

Offering tricks for treats

On this scariest of nights

Killer costumes amuse their hosts

Yearning for candy as little ghosts.

Writing, Writing Prompts

W.O.T.D. & Halloween Challenges 10-15-21 What a Grisly Scene!

On a spooky night, the ghouls came out

To celebrate Halloween

Their eyes popped out

When they came about

A dreadfully grisly scene!

The bottom floor they visited was dark

The door had been left ajar

But when they entered

Screams let loose

To find the scene thus far

A body chained was on the floor

Its head no longer there

The clothes were ripped

From what they thought

Could possibly be a bear

It was no bear, the policeman said

That caused the horrific sight

A werewolf had been seen they said

Running into the night.

The kids just stared, their mouths agape

Disbelieving every word

Yet as they left, the goosebumps broke

As more howling could be heard

Pairing off, they ran for home

Before it could come get them

And since that night, they’ve never entered

Another dark house on a whim.
