Firstly, why Sire’s Scary Halloween Poem. Well, back in the day, when I first started this blog, I went by the name Sire. When my database got corrupted, as described in this post, I lost all my posts. As I slowly resurrect them I keep the titles and slug for SEO purposes.
Even though I’m not a Halloween fan, I know there are a lot of Halloween fans out there. A while back, I wrote a post called A Poem For Halloween The Night Of Frights. As it turns out, that particular post brings in quite a bit of traffic every year around Halloween. Now I wonder why that is? 😛 That specific poem had a twist to it, and because it was so long ago I thought it was only fitting that I should post another Halloween Poem!
Sire’s Scary Halloween Poem
Screams Of Halloween
It’s Halloween, the night of fright
Which child will go missing tonight?
Do they know on whose door they knock?
For imagined treats, perhaps a shock!
Dark and scary, they venture still
Smiling pumpkins upon window sill
Dares’t they knock upon the door?
Knowing not who knocked before
Did they get the treats they sought?
Or perhaps some dreadful evil wrought
Upon young flesh sweet and innocent
So hungry for fresh souls to torment
Looking around, eerie sounds abound
Is that the baying of the devil’s hound?
Jack-O-Lantern’s smile or evil grin
A little fear brings goosebumps to skin
Though breath comes fast, still they knock
Door creakily opens as though to mock
Candles light a path to their treats
Will they enter or quickly retreat?
Temptation too much for them to bear
They venture slowly in to claim their share
The door swings shut they whirl around
Demons, ghosts and ghouls did abound
Passersby heard their terrified screams
Their flesh did crawl as from their darkest dreams
But walk on by past the house obscene
After all, are not screams part of Halloween?
After posting this, I thought that you might like to hear me give you a personal rendition and so I made a video and uploaded it to YouTube. I tried to give it a scary sound, but I’m not sure that I succeeded 😀
Well, that’s it, my scary friends. Did you enjoy it? Did it make your skin crawl? Which poem did you like best, the one from the other post or this one? If you enjoyed the video, please take the time to head on over to YouTube so you can give it the thumbs up. If you do I won’t have to haunt you :devil_tb:
If you liked it you know what to do, write me a comment telling me what you liked about it, but most of all share it with your friends on social media. Please give it a Tweet, share it with your Facebook friends. You know you want to, before the ghouls come to get you. 😈
