It was a dreary and gloomy October night
as I traversed the streets there were scenes filled with fright
I saw Frankenstein with the WolfMan
walking under a tree with an owl,
It was very eerie my legs felt weary
as WolfMan started to howl,
Then a Gorilla not Magilla,
was holding hands with Godzilla,
What was unfurling?
Winds were swirling
Had I awoken in a Creature Feature Thriller?
Then a tap upon my back
it was a Vampire asking for treats
I yelled out "No ! Now please just go!
"You,d have my blood for your sweets"
Then big and obscene
a muscled fiend
his skin was perpetually green,
I wished to sulk and then The Hulk
shouted, "Happy Halloween"!
