Scary October 24

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is Halloween from a Pumpkin’s point of view.



Are giddy

There is something

In the Autumn air

They don’t know what’s coming

Do you really think that’s fair

Does Jack-o’-lantern really want

A lighted candle stuck in is mouth

If they knew they would all be going south.



What can you

Do to calm their

Nerves, and soften the

Blow, we are going to

Scoop their innards out and make

Them in to delicious Pumpkin

Soup. They’ve been told they’re something special.

Now they know the truth, they have all been duped!
