The Coffin

(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?)
.............And then...
And then...
The coffin,,,,,
............
Stopped!!!
