On High

On High

A Chapter by Dave Brown



There are planets and comets

In the October sky

But that’s not all there is up there

Flyin on high


October is for vampires and ghouls

Lurking neath beds ‘n’ stools

Boogeymen, black cats and open crypts

Dastardly demons with yellow eyed slits


Gruesome goblins, out body snatching

Foul frightful fangs fearlessly flashing

Hobgoblins howling by haggard headstones

Grim reaper’s gagging gravesite groans


Malevolent mummies moonlit moans

Wanton werewolves chomping on bones

Witches on brooms outlined by the moon

Cadavers with body parts all wildly strewn


Watch for fright night’s evil jack-o-lantern

Hobgoblins lurking deep in dank caverns

And while scarecrows screech and scream

Have a haunting time on this Halloween

Haha, I am sure they can handle it but watch out for the hobgoblins in the bunny lair
Excellent alliteration Dave and ghoulish detail. Just right for Halloween. Happy Wednesday from across the pond.
