I Do Undo

A lad who could take what was dished
Found a girl who did as she wished 
So when she sat down
To take off her gown
All of his hopes and dreams were squished.

SPOOKY HOUSE




   There was a spooky house on a big hill
   Folk went in, to seek some kind of thrill
                   All souls that entered
                  Were definitly rendered
A mean old witch cast spells that gave a chill

Witch at Night

A witch on a  journey at night
was gripping her broomstick in fright -
the batteries low,
a distance to go,
she wished that she'd traveled by kite!

Crusty Odd and Fat

A crusty goblin cracked a crevassed grin
While chasing odd witches in a tailspin
He heisted her fat black cat
Whereupon her broom she sat
To kill all the rats in his crusty den

A priest on top of Mount Zion 
Offered a prayer to Orion
The scripture quoted
On the air floated
So lunch was fresh for the lion

To meet God in church we did yearn;

Not leave behind,
And with Love of God much can learn.

Sunday Times

Though English girls play with their dolls
A Scot lass just loves stroking balls
'tis a sight to be seen
When they're out on the green
You see how their tea caddy falls

Jesus was stuck with every thistle;

Halloween Haunt

If you go to a Halloween hoolie
Just remember they can get unruly
Rousing ghosts in the night
If one gives you a fright
Well then give him a kick in the ghouly

when I hit on a bit of a snag
