Late on Halloween

Word of he Day Challenge-Improvizing

I wasn’t ready for Halloween

I didn’t have a costume to wear

My pumpkin didn’t have a face

my decorations were still in their  boxes

upstairs.

 

I didn’t know what to do

I wasn’t ready to make merry that night

What would I do when the witches, monsters  and ghouls

knocked on my door at twilight.

 

Hand them some candy, cupcakes or snacks

shaped like coffins, body parts and fangs

or better yet I suppose I could-

give them the real things instead.
