Music: The Monster Mash

All Hallows Eve


On pitch dark streets

‘Neath full-mooned sky

Walk creepy monsters

Who refuse to die

Dripping blood

From moldy skin

Rotting guts

Fall from within


Haunting on

All Hallows Eve

Leering out

Through shadowed leaves

Ghosts aloft

In frigid flight

Snatching children

In the night


Black cats screech

And caldron’s steam

Bats swoop down

While banshees scream

Wicked witches

On enchanted brooms

Take to the sky

Above haunted tombs



Cast eerie light

As mummies wander

Through the night

Vampires morph

Into bats on high

Searching for blood

From the dark night’s sky



Do take care

While running streets

And be aware

For hiding in

The shadowed light

Are scary monsters

With you in sight

I had fun reading this...You always capture the subject without flaw. You brought back all the wonderful memories that our family had on so many halloweens past. We used to wait til the kiddos left and then we would dress up ourselves and scare the trick or treaters that would come o' callin', but then when our kids got home we got them too! Ah...what just pleasant memories.
Thanks Sherry!

It's all a Madison Avenue and Hollywood nightmare foisted on kiddies and their parents to exploit their natural fear of the dark.

Hurry, buy scary stuff for fun and profit.
