(Halloween fun ~ with apologies to the Lord for wasting precious time.)
The night was dark and spooky as
He started to walk home,
A fog was falling and those eerie
Noises seemed to moan.
The hackles rose upon his neck
He turned around to see
A coffin standing upright, and said
“It is following me!!”
He started walking faster as
He listened to its bump;
As fast as he went, so it went and
Even gave a jump.
His heart was racing madly as
He sprinted for his home;
If he could get into the house
It might leave him alone.
The steps he fairly jetted ~
He locked the door behind;
He heard the coffin coming ~
It smashed the door and chime!
So he “flew” up to the bathroom ~
Up on the second floor,
He shut the door and locked it but
The coffin came once more!
He heard the bumps come steadily...
His heart was in his throat;
He looked about for anything
To deal a deadly blow....
Bump, bump, it came now faster!
He knew his time was gone!
He reached into the cabinet
Cough medicine ~ all he found....
With all his might he hurled it ~
The bottle loudly popped...
It broke upon the coffin and...
(Are you ready, Freddie?
Are you game, Jane?
Are you ready, spooks and goblins?)
