The Nightmare King

The Nightmare King 
Mighty autumn ruler
All powerful deity,
Travels on the wings of crows
Brings spooks and goblins out of hidey holes
Pulls basilisk out of swampy ponds
Gnashing his terrible teeth
Throwing knives in fearsome ways
Terrifying pumpkin fields
Dancing his Lewd and Eager dance
Lavishly spitting and spewing
Angry hot lava-like bullets
Arriving on the skeleton of a death dragon
The Nightmare King
Rules Halloween
In all his War-like glory
Terrifying us as we 
Trick –or-Treat
