Cooking rats, a newt and a juicy, fat lizzie!

Hush! Watch out, watch out, people, do watch out!

Loadsa wicked witches on brooms are flying about!


If you’re not wary, chary; a bit unprepared, my friend,

Evil spells will hit – aargh, that could be your end!

 

Withered old crones jet out with spell books perched upon their brooms,

Packed with sinister, witchy designs – yikes, the big danger looms!


A coven is toiling, all witches a-busy,

Cooking rats, a newt and a juicy, fat lizzie!

 

Cauldrons hot up a-bubbling and boiling, with..

Spiders, scorpions, snakes – aye, ‘tis no myth!

 

Meanwhile, spooks, ghouls, draculas and ghosties,

Tootle hither-thither, helter-skelter, tipple-tail with ease!


Jack-o-lanterns, beam their evil grins,

Wispy cobwebs bait flies, fleas ‘n even vermins!

 

Skeletons rattle, vampire bats go a-screeching,

Chains jangle, jet black ravens go a-shrieking!

 

Shouts of “Trick or treat!” echo all around,

As excited children frolic in every ground!

 

Yes, indeed, folks, ‘tis a night to remember,

For Halloween comes just once – in every October!

I’m rather afraid of..

Cats,

Rats,

And,

Bats.

I’m dead scared of..

Spooks,

Snoops,

And,

Ghouls.

I’m petrified of..

Zombies,

Creepies,

And,

Goonies.

So, I’ll just..

Sit me down,

Safe, indoors,

And,

Drink hot cocoa.

Cause today..

‘Tis Halloween, Trick or Treating,

But,

Me, snug as a bug, sheltered,

Indoors, reading!

Look out! Watch out! Mind out!
Slimy-cor-blimey Spooks are about.

Witches fly, and snakes a-slither;
Ghouls glide, skim hither-thither.

Creepy-crawlies! Yikes! Shiver me timber!
Scorpions! Centipedes! Gosh, how they limber!

Cobwebs! Spiders! Ants, and what-not;
‘tis a trap, be warned, a bait, to catch us lot.

Asudden, Ghosts pop up – a deadly shock!
Be wary! Alert! Just toss ‘em a rock.

Ravens and crows, go flap a-screeching;
Bats and vampires, go bite a-bleeding.

Darkness, scary shapes….and eerie sounds;
Odours most foul, waft in the grounds.

Rattling bones, skinny skeletons, bulging eyeballs;
Jangling chains, roaches – but shush! I hear phone calls.

Hello? The telephone line crackles,
Oh no! The head wicked witch cackles…

Whaaat?? Warty’s keen to know: “Trick or Treating?”
Who, me? I fire back: “Ha! Safe in bed a-sleeping!”
