Trick or Treat?

witchy poo cartooned

I spy a bowl of candy,

It lures me up the stairs,

     I feel the goosebumps dot my skin,

                   as I near the witches’ lair.

What secrets do they harbor?

What evil brews inside?

Should I grab the candy,

or should I run and hide?

My arms feel like cannon balls,

my feet feel like lead,

If I take the candy,

will I end up dead?

I take a step backwards,

the door opens wide,

and a gnarled, claw-like hand

beckons me inside!

Before I know what’s happening,

I’m running down the street,

‘Cuz, the last thing I plan to be,

 is the witch’s treat!
