Halloween

I read a poem about what to bring to a beheading today and it inspired me to pen this.
Anyone is welcome if they would like to add something macabre to this thread.


The Escalator

I am so scared that escalators
Suck kids through their teeth
And maul them 'til they scream in pain
And moosh them down beneath

The janitors will swab their blood
And flush it down the drain
Their bones will get stuck in the mop
And stab into their brain

None will let their mothers know
What has become their fate
They will walk oblivious
Right past that sewer grate

But here it comes, I have arrived
I'm at the stairway top
I know I'll beat my fear someday
But until then I'll hop
I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks." I said, "Don't mention it."

Sorry, written one handed on my phone:



Aliens only abduct you at night,
Why is that always the case?
Walking past dark is a terrible fright,
It doesn’t help if you have mace.

A light beam will draw you up into their ship,
You need to be very concerned.
Maybe deep space will soon be your crypt,
I hope that you will be returned.

No one will trust the fantastical tale
When you tell people why you were taken
They’d wince, they’d worry, their face would grow pale
Their confidence surely be shaken

For why would they take all their victims pre-dawn?
Your question I now will illumine,
The alien’s kids had their homework not done,
Their children? They needed a human.
I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks." I said, "Don't mention it."

Writing for children is easy and hard,
Your logic just needs to be broken.
Use words that catch their parents off guard,
And awkward whenever they’re spoken.

May I suggest pus, pimples and farts,
To make sure the children enjoy it.
The fun they’ll have will be off the charts,
Bland words would only destroy it.

If stories have guns and vampires and such,
Or witches and werewolves too,
An elf or a goblin, it doesn’t take much,
As long as it’s something taboo.

In stories a kid can steal a new car,
Or think about an addiction.
This is where they work it all out,
It’s safe there ‘cause it’s only fiction.

Their brains are learning of things they don’t know,
Their young minds will never be blocked.
Judgment and labels you’ll have to forgo,
The child in you likes to be shocked.

The 31st is almost here,
Strange kids will come to our door,
Asking for candy and money an beer,
Like all of the years of before.

Actually beer is not on their list,
I only made that one up.
Trick or Treating, I kinda have missed,
I’ve not been since I was a pup.

But if folks were passing out whiskey,
Or brandy or bourbon or wine,
I wouldn’t think it too risky,
To dress up would be very fine.

If I were to sample the goods,
Before I got back to the house,
My costume would turn into prison duds,
Arrested for being a souse.
I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks." I said, "Don't mention it."
