The 8th Annual Halloweensie Contest

My two entries are listed below.


A loud knock on my door signaled dinner was here,
but what stood on my porch made me shiver in fear.

At my door was a monster whose name was Big Fred.
In his hands were my pizza, my soda and bread.

From a cauldron he handed out napkins and plates,
to the werewolves who toasted each other as mates.

Then together the monsters inhaled my whole meal.
Each one growling and howling, “It’s Halloween – deal.”

The Soccer Team

The soccer team that played on Halloween night
was manned by players causing shivering fright.

The vampires roamed as strikers baring sharp skills,
with crows for wingers who attacked with their bills.

The sweepers flew around. They all held a broom,
to stir their potion-filled hot cauldrons of doom.

Their zombie coach was lumbering by his net,
as werewolves howlingly defended the threat.

No shot on goal got past their keeper that day,
a six-foot monster who came ready to play.
