10/20 "Who Said Boo?"

Post  BC Williams on Thu Oct 20 2011, 19:10

First topic message reminder :


"WHO Said BOO?"
A Halloween Prompt
A long time ago, someone thought it would be cool to have a special night where little ghosts and goblins could run from door to door begging treats or tricks . . .
Around a dark corner a might lurk
a black might cross your path
a might swoop down beside your feet

or a might conjure her wrath!
On every step creaking, sit -
their eyes search for ghoulies of night,
and eager children dressed up for the eve
will gobble their with
affraid


Good Luck . . . and be so very careful BOoooooooooo!

Whooooooooo!!!!!

Post  jinettyx on Sat Oct 22 2011, 02:01

Whooooooooooo!!!!




On Halloween, there are ghosts to be seen
Rattling their chains in the night
Skeletons hide in your wardrobe
Waiting to give you a fright

On Halloween, there are goblins and ghouls
Playing their tricks on your mind
Witches on broomstick, casting their spells
With their cats sitting closely behind

On Halloween, there are spiders and rats
Crawling and gnawing on bed posts
A prickle of fear will grab you, my dear
As will the spirit of most ghosts

On Halloween, be afraid, don’t be seen
Hide under your blankets ‘til morn
Do not tremble nor shake, even though you’re awake
Wait ‘til the zombies have gone

On Halloween, the night is so long
The dread and the fear rises high
The great bead of sweat, lay thick on your brow
Panic stricken, you try not to cry

For in your bedroom, they’re hosting a party
They would like it if you would join in
But you’d rather stay under the covers
And muffle your ears from the din

On Halloween, the undead arise
Looking for other lost souls
Close your eyes, look away, leave the zombies at play
Or you might become one of the ghouls.
affraid affraid affraid

Request a Guest


Aaah!, said I, with nose held high
The great smell of death in the air!
A party, you say, on this Halloween day?
Well thankyou, I’m sure I’ll be there!

Shall I be wearing a sheet, or is that too discreet
Would I be covering up who I am
Would it frighten them much, to reveal my cold touch
Oh tell me now, what be your plan?

Shall I behave like a loon, and howl at the moon
Shall I rattle my chains and my shackle
Oh do let me know, do you wan’t me to crow
Or behave like a witch and just cackle?

Shall I walk side to side, with my arms stretching wide
And be wearing my tattiest vest?
Or a cloak of black satin, with one or two bat in
Tell me Sir….what’s for the best?

I’m excited , you see, I have never been me
Or invited to such a grand ‘do’
Will I play a big part, that is close to my heart
Do you wan’t me to wear my stake too? !!!

I wrote a Halloween poem
Didn’t make a lot of noise
But got accused of being prolific
They were blaming it on the boys

Being blamed for having fun
And beating all the girls
Wonder if it would be different
If I wore twin set and pearls

I stopped writing poems
So the girls could have a chance
Just hope they don’t dress as witches
And do some spooky dance

So come on pretty ladies
Halloween is coming soon
Write about hob goblins
And the odd flying broom

I'm a slow ghoalette, waiting in the lines -
if you'll give me a chance, that'd be kind.
I'll be there with bright chains around my hem
and a pocket of moaning like most good femmes . . . .
So hold your dander, don't muck up your drawers,
I'LL BE THERE after my numerous chores!

Now here's the chorus, y'all sing along,
sing it LOUD and sing it strong:
Women are tortoises, carefully slow -
men are large hares with a lot of blow
but in the end, if you remember the punch:
tortoises will have been there to serve hares lunch!

:booooo: HOO sunny

Hehehe . . . good to see you having a great time Pete! Really, Halloween is not a special time for me now that I'm an adult. I need to get into the mindset of a child, I guess . . . or be like Martha Stewart!

Who Said Boo?

Post  Cheryl Brickner on Sat Oct 22 2011, 13:40

It must be Halloween!
You can hear the children scream!
Around the corner is a haunted house,
It's as ugly as a louse!
Children dare not go near
For it gives them such a fear.
Shuffling of little feet,
Running door to door for a treat.
Excitement is in their eyes,
Shouting "trick or treat"
Waiting for a surprise!

Happy Halloween!
© 2011 Cheryl

Thanks for your wonderful addition.

Great poem Cheryl, I think so far I'm the only one who has not posted a Halloween poem, I'm trying to write one.
Every time I think I have one going good, it turns out wrong.
I'm going to to get this one completed in between naps....I will be out with the family I babysit for, taking their little ghost and gobbles out and about, getting their treats.

Yes, I will be dressed but as well, hey I'm still a kid at heart lol

A HAUNTING AT THE B ?


Something very spooky going on here in the B,
Something doesn't seem right.
For every time I turn the page,
something holds it back.

It just started today don't really know why,
I had to refresh to turn back a page.
I'm not for sure, I don't care to know,
but is there a haunting here at the B ?

I know it's almost Halloween,
that is very clear.
But Does the hauntings need to begin here?
Why not somewhere far away.

This not not my Halloween poem,
this is not what I had in mind.
I just wish the pages here at the B,
Not stick together !

:booooo: affraid

The monsters are dancing
I hear their heavy feet prancing
Doing the monster groove
If I were you I would move
Their feet are so big and and loud with their bangs
They creep about most of the year in their gangs
Once a year they jump out with a mental rush
Be careful how you walk I think there is one in that bush
They are all kinds of monsters lurking this night
And one thing is for sure they will give you an awful fright
Hide in your house and lock all the doors
If you listen well you can hear their roars
They are banging and booming towards your door
Screaming for money and sweets all the more
Trick or treat you will hear them cry
The little monsters, devils and witches with make up round their eye
So careful how you tread tonight
Because you are in for such a fright

best I could do :)

Three witches

Post  jinettyx on Sun Oct 23 2011, 11:15

Three witches



Three witches round a cauldron pot
All three making trouble
Chanting, stirring, adding frogs
Too much hubble-bubble!

Pointy hats and yellow teeth
Long noses with a wart on
Scraggy necks and smelly feet
Casting spells so rotten.

Evil cackling, loud and raspy
Gnarled and bony knuckles
Three witches round the cauldron pot
All hysterically chuckle!

All gathered round the stewing pot
Each stirring one by one
Adding little bits of this and that
Until their brew is done!

Three witches round the cauldron pot
Three bellies, cold and empty
Making froggie soup with tadpole bread
A delicacy for their tea!
