The Halloween party needed a scare Someone said the ouija board for a dare But bad spirits came knocking Their foul language was shocking And caused many to soil their underwear... The putrid air now turned rancid and thick And to smash it you'd have needed a brick Then they all started leaving As they left they were heaving And on the rooftop laughing was Old Nick... Written 9th October 2020.

Oh my !!! Seeing "Old Nick on the rooftop" at Halloween. I think would be a good reason to heave and laugh so hard :) Giggle. To "soil their underwear" too. Perhaps. This is so cute, clever and creative. Thanks for the smile Tom. My best to you. :) Brandy

Ouija Boards can generate all sorts of feelings among users. A friend had one when I was a child and we played with it. Maybe if we'd have been a little more serious, some spirits might have visited. Enjoyed the humor, Tom. Best wishes if it's for Tania's contest. Hugs, Carolyn

Thank you very much Carolyn, I wouldn't mind good spirits visiting but I've heard of some people needing a priest to carry out an exorcism after bad spirits showed up. Hope you're well. Tom

Thank you Lindsay, it's kids dressed up as ghouls and they knock doors saying trick or treat, if you say trick you could be squirted with green slime, best to hand over sweets lol. Tom

Me too. Parents bought me a ouija board when I was a kid. Then we dabbled in a seance...not good. Gave my life to Christ...I dabble no more. Blessings in double heaps for you!
