Blackie mounts my broomstick every Halloween With her silky coat and eyes of emerald green We’re silhouetted in the moonbeam's gleam Kitty meows so loudly if ever we are seen Children point at us and let out a scream Look at that black cat and the warty old witch Blackie’s hackles rise, her meow rises in pitch - I wish my black kitty had got a volume switch We rise then fall as my broomstick gets a glitch Suddenly we're both propelled into a watery ditch Poor kitty's fur’s wet, bracken covers her left eye We clamber from the water, and I let out a sigh She meows like a banshee, I know the reason why... as she's lost our big container of sweet pumpkin pie - It’s her Halloween treat; I can’t bear hearing her cry! Her meowing gets so loud soon it reaches a decibel So I get out my wonky wand and repeat a magic spell My broom flies out the ditch, the pumpkin pie as well We both climb onto the broom and fly off to a motel - I’m glad we got the pie back, or she'd make my life hell!

So fun, Jan! The monorhymes in each stanza really move your delightful story. I really chuckled with the "bracken over one eye!" Great picture. Congratulations on your win my friend.

Hee-hee, Blackie's pumpkin pie now probably tastes a bit like fishy water. This is adorable. Good luck in the contest.
