'T was on a cheerless moonlit night
Our neighbour ran out of his house in fright
He saw something spooky
That looked like his cat Nooky
But turned to be an evil wight

An abundance of spooky old spiders
Shared fall harvest hot apple ciders
Drunk, stumbling friends
On steaming moonlit blends
Were hilarious supercolliders!

There once was an old witch called Mary
Who thought she was spooky and scary,
But try as she might
She wasn't a fright
In fact she was more like a fairy !!!!!

A true friend I thought I had
then discovered me something sad
niavely I gave my trust
hilarious it was a bust
but the lesson I got aint that bad

This does quite sound right, does it?....

Hallow'een witches forming a circle,
Wearing black cloaks over soft purple,
Through the veil they toast
an abundance of ghosts,
enjoying thier friends metaphysical.

On Halloween I traverse with my friends
to dark places where reality suspends.
We commit deeds truly nefarious
and think them so hilarious,
that our cackling never quite ends!

I wish i was a cup of tea,
as steaming as steaming could be
I'd have lashings of cream
I'd be an absolute dream
So hot,that someone would drink Me !

One beautiful late harvest night,
an abundance of apples took flight,
They thought it was fun
Thinking they were in a bun
and then someoneone took just one bite:eek:
