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!”
