Let’s Go Trick-or-Treating

“I do love a little Halloween fun. The thrill of a ghost hunt. A terrifying trail to find the best candy. Getting in my warm bed after a frightful night, only to enjoy my cocoa with a haunting story. Happy Halloween my friends!”

I wrote this poem in answer to the following prompts:
FOWC with Fandango  — Trick
Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge — Trick– Treat – Broom
Your Daily Word — Abet
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Procrastinate
Word of the Day Challenge  — Spooky

Let’s Go Trick-or-Treating

Halloween night is about to arrive
Get ready to trick or treat
Where spooky monsters thrive
Demon pumpkins glow at your feet

Put on your hideous fancy dress
Then into the darkness, you trek
For candy, you seek to impress
Eerie mists rise between hell and heck

Zombies threaten from the first fence
You procrastinate at the gate
Screaming trick-or-treaters build suspense
 Skeleton’s hint at your fate

Your fear rises but in you go
A beguiling witch passes with her broom
Her smile says friend and not foe
From the door, demonic figures loom

You pray they dispense delicious treats
But fear they abet the wraiths of death
You play the cute vampire for spooky sweets
Their demonic growls steal your breath

Laughter rises beneath their cowls
Candy appears and you take your leave
Next door a werewolf howls
The witch awaits hiding behind her sleeve

Like a brave knight, you protect her
Together you trick or treat into the night
She gives you a kiss and her number
Yes Halloween was worth every fright

👻Happy Halloween!🎃

      1. Sorry I’ve just got up and it’s 4:30 in the morning. Beneath the Surface is like Dracula. The whole story is told through documents, I’m trying to create them realistically.

      2. I’m sorry if I woke you.

        I see.
        No, I’m sorry I was expecting something entirely different. Like prompt type thing from when you mentioned it.

        I thought the mining article was one you found and posted so you did a really good job making that.


      3. No, the intention was for others to share their WIPS. Hetty mentioned that I should post something I was working on and I thought this might spark some interest because it was unusual. It’s not real good though…. So

      4. I probably should have explained better but the idea of recreating the documents came to me at the last minute and I was so busy I forgot about it. I didn’t think people would think it was a factual document given I don’t normal post that kind of stuff

      5. Yes I think a sentence or two introducing the concept and story might have sold it a bit better. You could still go back and add that. I mean you’re going to link it to tomorrows anyway. I think a story through articles is a very clever idea.
