Moans and Groans

Moans and Groans

A Chapter by Dave Brown

groans and moans


A cackling coven of crystal gazing crones            

Crawl round circles chanting mad moans

An occult, hexes and curses  type scene

For shamans and sorceresses on Halloween


Daemons and witches with banishing tools        

Educated at dark scry foreseeing schools

With black capes, pointy hats and black hose

And sharply enhanced, extremely long nose


Bewitched, besom brooms soon set to fly

Backdropped by full orange mooned Halloween sky  

On the altar, talisman, symbols and incense   

Hedgecraft concoctions, tuned up for suspense     


A volume of vampires with vested interests

Joins goblins and zombies on gruesome quests

Voodoos and dancing scarecrows to attest

Whether demons or skeletons scare very best


The spooks and gooks are most happy to eat

Anything that happens by on two feet

If that mistreated morsel tastes real sweet

They’ll go searching for a gobbling repeat


Raunchy ravens squawkin, spooks appaulin

Magic barriers fallin, invokers séance callin

Straw corn bodies seeking for astral planes      

And witches on brooms causing night pains


From sacrificial altar where heartbeat’s falter

To corn scarecrow trousers held up with a halter

With spooks and spirits programming GPS

So, night broom sorties won’t be a bad guess


When the c**k crows, all comes to a close   

Nov. 1st it’s back to work in business clothes

Costumes, cauldrons, cravens back on the shelf

Another year passes for witchcraft and elf

Quite a Halloween party you had going here Dave. Good job it's only once a year eh, with all that ghoulish stuff going on? Ghoulish and suitably spooky. Good afternoon from Brixham Harbour.
