dress up is a curse
No costume to fit my chest size
However,  I won a prize
My 'Elf' shirt was about to burst

A very cute and fun poem about Halloween. As kids, it was a sad thing when we found out that we have grown to big to wear a Halloween costume. But, now there are just as many adults as there are kids who dress up for Halloween! Great poem, SKAT!...Thank you for the nice comments! :)

Rereading this one because it is so cool. Gosh, how did I not catch your limerick rule?Maybe I was looking at all the other entries and saw others doing them in any style & just follwed the crowd! Unbelievable you got only a few of them as actual limericks. Next time do a blog to let us know how bad we are messing up. hahaha. Good grief! Sorry you didn't get many limericks. I am wanting "properly written haiku" for MY contest, and I am sure only half will end up being that way. LUv, Andrea
