“Something Wicked,

This Way Comes.”

 

William Shakespeare

 

We have many ghosts and goblins

Here, at haunted Thornwood Manor

I first saw this one, several nights ago

It rushed by me in the driveway, in a blur

 

It looked like an old woman in a cape

A tattered grey hood, covered its face

I knew I had never seen this one, before

I wondered why it had come to our place

 

I began to worry a little, when I saw it again

As I gazed out our window, one foggy night

This hooded figure seemed to be staring at me

And now, it was giving me, an odd, eerie fright

 

When I soon told my spouse about this new specter

She claimed that she had never seen this ghoul, before

So, I put its eerie, haunting vision in the back of my mind

Until the other night, when it now stood outside our backdoor

 

Now, mustering my curiosity and my courage, I opened the door

And this grey-cloaked figure rushed off into the deep, dark trees

My spouse begged me not to pursue it into the darkness, but I did

And I could now hear her screaming at me, “Be Careful, Pee Wee!”

 

But quite oddly, I soon found its grey cape and hood in some bushes

Then, I heard my wife now very oddly cackling, by our dark driveway

And, by her side, stood the now cloak-less canine co-conspirator of hers

It was Junior, our Momma’s Boy dog, also reveling in the trick they played

 

“I finally got you back, Mr. Trickster Pee Wee Wolfman;

My only regret right now, is that I should have video-taped you!”

And I have now vowed my revenge on Mean Tall Woman and Junior

Something Wicked Their Way Will Come, Before Howloween Is Through

I also asked Bela Lagosiand Peter Lorre to help get you to the party because you'd all be in a coma until you get there. So be good for a change and let us know you are coming, otherwise,there'll be hell to pay...sis morphed into etwitchy ;-) heehee...i got a new cookie for you, a surprise...hehehe
