A Haunted Halloween Tale of Horror

October 22, 2013

This is a poem I wrote for my parents when I was a freshman in college. Proof, clearly, that I was long destined for writerly greatness. 

 

A Haunted Halloween Tale of Horror
 
There was once a young girl
Who loved her mom and dad
And tried to make something
To keep them from being sad
On Halloween
 
She got all her friends
To make pictures and poems
And determined to send them
As soon as she managed to roam
To the post office
 
But oh no she was waylaid, lost
A pumpkin came and
I knew at all costs
He’d try to squoosh
My car
 
I swerved, I swirled, I tossed, I turned
I did it all
But still my stomach churned
In fear
 
That pumpkin was big, Dad, really big!
It came out of nowhere
Like a big mack truck
 
OPTIONAL ENDING NUMBER ONE
But it spontaneously combusted
Boy, was I in luck!
 
OPTIONAL ENDING NUMBER TWO
So I swerved to avoid it
And BUT DIDN’T ha ha
 
(Also noted on the manuscript of awesome: Don’t forget toilet paper)
 
Previous draft (so all may share in the process of creating genius):


It was all Hallow’s Eve
And boy was I peeved
My costume had a ripped sleeve
So I ran to Bender
The ripped costume mender
And wouldn’t you know someone had
Hit my fender!
(No, Mom, I didn’t get in an accident, it’s just a poem after all.)

 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL!
