The Oscar Wiener Dog

A dachshund named Oscar was he, which adored trick or treating with me, so I had me some fun when I sewed a cloth bun, for a Halloween weenie he’d be On his costume I added a trim mustard yellow, but though he’s not slim, he’s no Oscar Mayer, so don’t raise his ire by taking a bite out of him!

Strut the Butt Jabba

On Halloween night I will strut Dressed like Jabba the Hut Many sweets I will eat As it is trick or treat And double the size of my butt

Winnie Witch loves this time of year Halloween time is drawing near In her pink underwear She’ll give you quite a scare Then she’ll hastily disappear! Away on her broomstick she flew Ended up in darkest Peru She went on a hike Then got on her bike It’s the thing some travelers do! On our Island Halloween is called 'Hop Tu Naa' The local shops are starting to have displays in their windows which inspired the poem 09~21~16

Beware Of The Curmudgeon On Judson Street

In a dark, dark room this Halloween Night,

     I will seclude myself sans outside light,

          And when kids shout "trick or treat",

               Behind my door I'll retreat,

                    And eat all the Snickers bars just for spite!

Halloween Night

What's wrong with these people tonight?
They're screaming I gave them a fright.
"A black cat!" they shriek,
but only last week
they held me; I purred with delight.

These neighborhood kids are so weird.
On Halloween night I am feared.
The rest of the time,
my life is sublime.
To all of them, I've been endeared.	

It soon will be November First,
and I'll be no longer accursed.
I'll hear, "Look at that,
a beautiful cat!"
Man! Halloween night is the worst.

A White Pumpkin Family Review

Cotton Candy is a pumpkin who
Is known as White Pepo too.
Her nice rounded shell
She keeps very well,
And one day she met Baby Boo.

Baby Boo is quite small, and at night
He might glow, an albino pure white.
He is both good looking
And good at cooking!
He and white Pepo make a rare sight.

Cotton Candy (White Pepo) and he
Got together, and baby made three.
With skin color cream,
The baby’s a dream
And he’s part of the Ghost family.

Like his Mom, maybe better, is he.
Ghost can keep for a long time and be
Just like his Dad too.
Like that small Baby Boo,
In the oven he can bake sweetly.

Another White pumpkin, meanwhile,
In Carol’s patch sat on a pile.
Smooth, round and pure white,
An adorable sight,
Is this pumpkin with decorative style.

Other pumpkins can read this and weep
For Halloween has a new peep!
For MINE, cute and small,
Has the name of Snowball
And clear up to Christmas can keep!

"What No Orange Pumpkin" Poetry Contest

This Halloween

For Halloween I want to be a wicked witch
With nothing but evil sewed in every stitch
Give the kids lots of candy how awesome
Then I'll scare the pants right off them
And just hope I don't wake up in a ditch

Bad Ghoulish Goblin

There once was a bad ghoulish goblin.
Thump, thump on a crutch he was hobblin’.
It was Halloween night.
He dared to give a fright.
But he fell to the ground; he was wobblin’.

Strumpet Meets Star Wars

For trick or treating Stella the strumpet

Got dressed up as a butterscotch crumpet

     Caught his eye – Jabba the Hutt

     He had hunger pangs in his gut

No more strumpet; Hutt plays "Taps" on trumpet

When I saw them coming I knew what to do

Straightened out the white sheets and pulled my mask down, too.

When the doorbell rang I yanked it wide
Three sets of eyeballs stood there white eyed~

They didn't expect my ghostly "BOO"!

"Trick or Treat" one finally professed

My staring gaze...they thought me possessed.

I grabbed a handful of candy for each

And with an alabaster hand stretched out my reach~

I thought, "Another Halloween Conquest"!

Zombie Named Luke

Zombie Named Luke

There was an old Zombie named Luke
Who thought Halloween was a fluke
One person he ate
Did taste like a cake
But caused him great pain and to puke

Halloween Limerick

There once was a Halloween party
All of the costumes there were naughty
I tried to be cute
Wearing my birthday suit
And won the prize for costume most gaudy

Treat with laughter

Head bald, saffron robe, leaves of old scripture 
Visited disciples friend, introduced as Face Reader
Friend curious to know future
Revealed past, (disciple had briefed earlier)  
Future prediction goofed, prank exposed, had Treat with laughter

Halloween Curmudgeon!

I have no beef with Halloween per se

     Tho' 'tis like a vast guv-mint giveaway

          'Tis a scheme to spread the wealth

               As kids shake me down with stealth

                    I aim to keep socialism at bay

It's about that time for Halloween
Look at all the witches so scary and green
I'm getting ready to scare the pants off the kids
Have fun enjoy doing it I always did
It's halloween I'm not being mean

Halloween Treats

The highlight of the year for dear old Dad

     Was Halloween when treats were to be had

          His modus operandi

               Son you collect the candy

                    Snickers for me - licorice for you lad

The Vampire And The Lady Of The Night

There once was a vampire called Vincent
Finding true love was his main intent
As he skulked through the night
Causing women a fright
Biting necks was how he chose to vent

One night Vincent met up with a lady
You might say her job was rather shady
Soon she said what the heck
And she offered her neck
Then he gave her a thrill hot as Hades!

She fell in love as he sucked her blood
Vincent too as he felt his heart thud
Now he was quite love-struck
Could not believe his luck
She made him feel like some vampire stud!

Reformed Witch

Full moon listed, one Halloween night
A witch flared radioactive flight
Across the bow, around,
With such a swooshing sound,
Only a few saw this awesome sight.

She was adorned in black lacquered dress.
Her flight was erratic, under duress.
Plunging fast to the ground,
A whirlwind dive, no sound,
Upon impact, there was such a mess.

From the rubble there raised, a new form.
However, looked not much of the norm,
She stood, trying to sum.
Then spoke, watch out for rum.
Moreover, she needs to reform.

Old Edgar A Poe My Kin

Since I'm kin to Edgar Allen Poe
I like for Halloween to cause much woe.
     Out in the streets they're dressed up.
     And with all their crimes they corrupt.
The more the merrier, I say let them go!

I swing my pendulum everyday.
Those who are wise better get out of my way.
     Consider the dead
     Even some in their bed.
Needs to get out on this day and play!

In the graveyard the zombies are restless.
In the cave tops the bats wings getting stressless.
     They're ready to play
     On this Halloween day.
When they finish tonight they'll be guestless!!!!!

Halloween Friend

Here's to the skeleton within
That slinks about in our skin.
For a Halloween treat
Let us thank its two feet,
For not letting us bump our shin.

Costume for Two

Here’s for partners , both who are thin,
A costume they both can fit in.
I’ll explain now for you
The first thing you can do:
Find some trousers gargantuan!

And since one pair of pants must fit two,
You’ll each need to place both your legs through
Just one side of those pants
As you do a strange dance
‘Cause you’ll be stuck together like glue.

While walking, your steps must be small
And synchronized; else you will fall.
Get a baggy shirt too
For your partner and you.
No, you won’t be a prince at a ball!

For you’ll be there on Halloween Eve,
Each of you using only one sleeve.
With the other arm free,
Out of view it will be.
So what look will you try to achieve?

With two heads and one body you’ll be
The event’s curiosity!
But it’s all about show.
From that costume I know
You’ll be dying to get yourself free.

Trick or Treat Scare

There was a young fellow from Deets
Who went out for Halloween treats.
He knocked on a door,
Ghoul covered in gore
Quite frightened him out of his sheets.

He dropped all his treats on the street.
The chasing ghoul then stopped to eat
"When all's said and done
This isn't much fun",
He said, as he hastened his feet.

Be careful on this Halloween.
Beware creatures you've never seen.
Like the lad from Deets
Who was scared from sheets 
By ghoul who was rabid and mean.

Four way tie for 2nd.

Texting Addiction

Written by Gail DeBole on 10/23/2017
Updated on 10/27/2017

A witch addicted to texting
Sent all her curses by “hexting.”
On Halloween night
She "hexed" a spell to cause fright  
In a swirl of spirit quite vexing.

Trick or (You Know)

I'm off to find me something sweet
A yummy,  juicy Halloween treat
I've learned to follow my nose
No matter where it goes
My feet might smell, but smell with my feet?

I'll trick or treat and finish my task
While wearing a scary Halloween mask
The scariest of them all
No! not my mother-in-law
I'll tell you now before you can ask

If candy were money I would be rich
I'll satisfy my Halloween itch
And that thing I said before?
I can't stand it anymore
My mother-in-law, is truly a witch

Swamp Sounds

A stop along the swamp at night
Turn off motor shut out the light
A scary sound
From all around
The sound would make a Halloween fright

Majesty's Fall

There once was a majestic oak tree
Its leaves were magnificent to see
   But when those leaves fell
   They went straight to hell
Screaming like Halloween banshees
