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
There once was an old witch whose pies
Were unique in flavor and size.
She delighted her covens
When she opened her ovens,
With dozens of old crusty guys.
I have a friend by the name of Tim,
He keeps in shape when frequents the gym.
His Kelly green Mustang he drove
And smack'd it into a cove.
The witches got him and ate one of his limbs!
Under his nose hung a big greenie.
The kids all thought he was a meanie.
He didn't have a hankie.
That's why he was so cranky.
Also, he had a hollow weenie.
Jan's spouse said she's gilding the lilies
For treating herself to new frillies
All the neighbours got hot
When they saw what she bought
And that really gave Jan the willies!
There was a vampire named Vlad7
The Village all thought he was bad7
But the true story5
Just wasn't gory5
It turns out Vlad was just sad7
A Wookiee, the Wolfman and Jaws
Broke all of the Halloween laws
The shark got first bite
And was not contrite
His friends crawled away on their paws

There once was a cool guy named Jack
Jack o’ lanterns attacked his back
Witch Cate blew straight through
She saved the famed wizard Jack Black
*The House with a Clock in Its Walls
It's cold and rainy on Halloween
Where monsters and goblins are always seen
They're at my door asking for sweets
But they don't want tricks only treats
I could close my door but that would be mean
On Halloween night, the walking dead clones
Shuffle around with mumbled grunts and groans
But have no fear
When they come near
They would rather die, than turn off their phones!
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

Pumpkin party was in full swing
the ghosts and ghouls began to sing
they sang off key
it tickled me
as I danced ‘round the witches’ ring.
A distinguish old gent picked up tricks.
On Halloween, he went for a treat.
He staggered up the street.
Hips swaying g-stringed a drag queen!
Penned on May 05, 2014.
Tiny goblins running 'round
Some in mother's dressing gown.
Witch cackle delight
Was there such a night,
In this hallowed little town.
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
FOR HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST
There once was a lady named Queen
That loved going out on Halloween
She’d give the kids a fright
That lasted more than a night
With ghostly looks and lips of green
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’.

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
She wore red candy lips on Halloween
They didn't know she was a vampire queen
Her kiss was so sweet
Swept him off his feet
Sadly,no trace of him has ever been seen

There was an old witch who was stewing
She didn't know what she was doing
To make it complete
She stirred with her feet
I think she should just stick to brewing
Welcome to my naughty Halloween
Meet my dark and beautiful dream
On this night she's a witch
But by day not a stitch
So she's a stripper, but she's still my Queen
To the skeleton within
Slinking about in our skin.
A Halloween treat
Let us thank its feet,
Not letting us bump our shin.
The kids run about on the streets
while parroting their "Trick or Treats."
It's the children's true bliss
and the reason is this:
It's the day to fill up on free sweets!
For john Freeman's "Halloween Limerick Contest"
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
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
