The Invitation

The Invitation

A Chapter by Dave Brown



From the depths of dank, dirty dark

Slithering and sliding each, every time

Corpses with teethless cracked skulls

Seeking satisfaction, upwardly climb


The night of the dead sky’s black empty

Vengeful vultures vagrantly circle on high

Rising, ragged cadavers, in barely rags

Climb up to enjoy some pumpkin pie


Horrid Hilda who happily haunts in a heartbeat

Yearly arranges this Halloween happinin                

Sending to the underworld an invitation

And the living dead, they come a clamorin


There is roast turkey, spuds and green peas

With thick gravy to smother the feast

Then pumpkin pie buried in whip cream

Brings joy to each torn tattered deceased


Not a drop of food is leftover, all devoured

Mustaches represent a taste treat delight

Belly burps from gooks and gross goblins

Confirm their favorite feast of fright night

I am both envious & blown-away by your white water gush of bloody Halloween gore! You are outdoing everyone else for miles around, but I must say that I prefer spaghetti with eyeballs of Bigfoot. For all that horrific build-up, this feast was pretty tame & lame. Prefer demented discs of dastardly dogmeat with my piss-whipped potatoes (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

PS . . . still looking for your riposte to my age digs . . .

Now, I was wondering why I feel like declining this invitation, despite my decrepit state. Perhaps it's because there doesn't, seem to be any garlic sauce to keep the vampires away. But the Ghoulash sounds quite piquant.

Must be a gross lookin and pretty bad smellin party. But Horrid Hilda seems to be a thoughtful host! They all deserve it after rotting underground all the year round.
