A Chapter by Dave Brown




As Peggy the ghoul walked to the farm

She was toking on some smelly weed

Because she was small and her boots were tall

A ride became her need


She bummed a ride from a vampires’ bride

Dressed in a long black silken gown

Who rode a steed and stride by stride

They left that lonely old town


They set up shop at a night stop

Moonshine whiskey was what they made

Ensured patrons consumed every drop

Each night, while the music played


It is said that, with the patrons that    

Couldn’t remember the last thing said

They boiled em in oil, trimmed off the fat

Then both went to bed well fed

Once again, you've slammed your unique art of telling a sing-song jolly tale that reeks of smelly undertones & disaster. The contrast between your sunny bouncy storytelling & the gory substance of your characters creates a jarring effect like how it's been to live in the USA these past 3-1/2 years. Your last few pumpkin stabs have been so deeply penetrating, I'm a little intimidated to throw down some Halloween licks myself. Maybe I'll stick to bad breath (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A narrative poem seems rarely done well, but you did honor to the art with this whimsical piece.
