Halloween Scare

Dark evening not even a star

Wrong night to be coming home from the bar

It’s an awful long walk to your car

Me thinks your door’s been left ajar

Is there even any gas in that reservoir?

Everything seems so creepy and bizarre

Something's eyeing at you from afar

What’s that noise? Could it be a jaguar?

Or a farm animal being led to an abattoir?

Might it be a monster or a wakened avatar?

Or just some old lady in a peignoir?

Isn’t that an arm sticking out of her armoire?

Me thinks you might get the old feather and tar

Author: Line Monique Gauthier
I started writing poetry as a teenager and the passion for it flourished since retiring. I also dabble in photography, watercolour and acrylics. I created what I call Flash Memory Therapy. I am an active member of Haiku Canada and PoetrySoup.com. My poetry is down-to-earth and meant to be understood as opposed to impress with hifalutin words.
