"My Triple Halloween Limerick"

Example for Limerick Contest 

Ghosts that coast, embody their trustful host
Leave no posts,  they possess the host to roast
   These disembodied souls
   Are angry deranged ghouls 
Bode snatching demons, one’s life they engross.

Halloween’s treat where they accomplish feat
Children sweet, want only candy to eat
   May we all watch our children 
   Having no bewildering
Safeguarding thus our Halloweens so neat!

Hello! I’m beautiful and very sweet
Please gimme your candy snickers to eat
   I am an angel’s sibling 
   I only want a nibbling 
I only want a sweet, not ghoul’s mistreat!!

Great Limericks. The first one and the last one are really a work of great beauty in a style so unique so sweet and lovely. I have posted a new Poem 'Mysteries of Human Hairs'. Hope you would enjoy it. Love and best wishes my friend. ...Ravindra.... John Freeman

John, the first verse reminds me of some folks who log on to the Soup, post no poems, but offer harsh critiques on other poets' works. There have been a few of them! What a great limerick -- Please consider me an "angel sibling" who only wants a "nibbling." Love, carolyn

I can imagine what it would be like for a child to have total control of a container of candy..They would eat until they are sick, high on sugar, and wild..It would be one wild night for the parents..Like housing some demons for sure..I appreciate you letting me know that I won in the contest..Thanks for faithfully stoppiing by and reading my work..Sara
