The Grinch of Halloween

Descending October days buzzed on caffeine My house transforms into a living scene Walking past you’ll see it’s quite obscene Ghostly silhouettes dance beside the evergreen From the roof swings a broken doll figurine A creepy lonesome head lay just below a guillotine Zombie moans, hanging guts and sagging spleen From the darkness jump out ghouls unforeseen Bloody vampire waiting for his next cuisine A familiar cannibal has an appetizer of fava bean Of gloom and doom I’m the local fright queen Full of fervour and dread the kids will convene Dressed as batman and squid game and wolverine Ever keen for a scare, from tot to tween Eyes a-twinkle in a trick or treat rush of dopamine A haunted “Open soon” sign flashes citrine But the treat of this trick, it is a smoke screen Is wickedness a hereditary gene? My heart did not shrink or grow, nor am I green Yet I remain all hallows Grinch, the meanest of mean Because the best part of this festive routine Is I take it all down, the day before Halloween MWA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!!!
