It's almost Halloween so, Karen over at Baking in a Tornado had this
Along with some other (I suspect far more talented) bloggers I thought I'd give it a go.
If you've been around Fudge for long you will have seen that I have somewhat of a love for the old poetry lark. I'm rather more enthusiastic than talented though as a quick look back at my previous attempts proved with this one that I wrote the day I discovered I was wearing my dress INSIDE OUT in town and this one after I accidently baked my son cock cakes for his Birthday. Oh, and THIS one when all my appliances ganged up on me and finally - this one about bingo and big boobs ...
Anyway, I think it's fair to say that my poetry pretty much sucks BUT I DON'T CARE and I carry on writing it anyway.
It's not quite as bad as Miss Macs pumpkin carving though as I think this photo proves ...
|And this is why she isn't allowed to do it anymore ...|
So, with no more ado - I give you:
Nothing To Fear Here
There's a night in October called All Hallows Eve
when the ghosts and the ghouls come to play
They dance and they prance and they cackle with glee
all with a faint whiff of decay
Spooks, apparitions and phantoms roam free
Ghosts, wraiths, bats and goblins abound
The churchyard becomes a no-go zone
As they claim it as their stomping ground
Jack-O-Lanterns burn on the windowsill bright
To ward off the evil spectre
While inside I huddle (the covers pulled high)
On speed dial the local Rector
It isn't the witches and wizards I fear
(Though they do play a part in my thoughts)
Or even the touch of those cold, bony hands
It's the fact that they're covered in WARTS!
I mean, come on witches, ghoulies and ghosts
Take a seat, have a cheeky Sambuca
It's a medical ailment and easily cured
Just apply a little Bazuka!
