💀The skeletons on my street
dance beneath a full moon
as werewolves howl and gather round
to celebrate their favorite night.
🎃Halloween is here!🎃
Witches brew sticky potions
simmering in cauldrons
👻while ghosts and goblins
wait for their share.
“Achoo!” went the tooth fairy.
👹Scary monsters and silly ones too👺
ring spooky doorbells
in their quest for candy🍬
and other sweet treats.
“Brains!” said the zombie.
🤠Cowboys and cowgirls alike load
their most prized loot in pumpkins🍫
alongside pirates and vampires – for on this night,
the scariest of nights, monsters, goblins and the like roam free!
“Boo!” said the ghost.
Happy Halloween! If you’re like me, you’ll be enjoying the treats along with the trick-or-treaters this evening. Here the trick-or-treaters will be roaming along white streets and around tall snowbanks.
An early winter has already covered our tiny community with a thick blanket of snow. But you can’t stop those ghastly ghosts, goblins, and all the other Halloween creatures from celebrating the scariest night of the year!
A Quick Dose of Halloween Humor
Why is the Boogeyman always invited to Halloween parties? Because he can boogey!😹
What were the ghosts dancing to? Soul music, of course!
What happened when one ghost asked for a whiskey? The bartender said “Sorry sir, we don’t serve spirits here.”
What did the zombie order? That’s a no-brainer. A shot of To-Kill-YA! What else?
What did the zombie say to his date? I just love a woman with BRAAAINS!
What kind of music did the mummies like most at the party? Wrap music! It’s how they roll.
What was the monster’s favorite song of the night? Monster Mash – no dah!
What did the werewolf play on the jukebox? Dancing in the Moonlight. Admit it – you weren’t expecting that, now were you? But he was feeling a little warm and fuzzy as he reminisced about the good old days.
Why didn’t the skeleton dance at the Halloween party? He had no body to dance with.🙀
What did the vampire sing before the night was over? Bad to the Bone. He fancied himself a lady killer.
In celebration of Halloween last year, I wrote Murder on Birch Street. It’s a flash fiction story that features Max, the family dog. It also represents my first attempt at flash fiction. Please feel free to check it out. 😉
And as you know, I love music. So, I thought I’d share some spooky (and some not so spooky) music with you to help celebrate this Halloween. From what I can tell, you need to listen on Spotify to hear the full playlist – which means that I just learned something new. Until next time, be kind to yourself. You’re worth it!
