When Evil Comes Calling

Rubber Frankenstein mask

red fake blood

whiter than white

phantom ghost spirits

Adams family lookalikes

Lurch's croaky voice

We rang twice

Morticia, Uncle Fester

axe shiny head

Witch's green eyes

broomstick spell maker

darkest of dark

spitting black cat

killer clown wig

plastic painted face

orange bat bucket

shoved at you

Trick or Treat

sweets not wanted

serious cash demanded

alterative, credit cards

menacing bullying tactics

costumed protection gangs

operating Halloween night

reaping the rewards - - -


Harmless spooky fun

mischief is turned

into something sinister

when this cursed

deadly haunting evil

comes calling round.

Grim can reap rewards

◄ War is Declared - - -with defeat in mind

Signs that Light up the Star Lit Sky ►

Oh! how we all dress up every day...
our evil web to weave.

Who said poetry was dead.

I think Nigel wrote this about Mischief Night which takes Halloween to a whole new level in Liverpool.

Thanks for your like Binte

I tried to keep the haunting feeling that was so fresh last night when young and old enjoyed dressing up, each to play out a role of the scary dead.
