pumpkins beheaded,
where are those black cats headed?
directionless witches,
grantin’ black magic wishes,
ghouls all haunt the gallows
there mummies within the shallows,
you’ll sink your fangs into me,
despite my garlic rosary,
frankenstein’s monsters roam the streets,
cloaked beneath old bed sheets,
that are stained with a love that once was,
filling that void with a sugar buzz,
begging for sweets,
nevermind the rotting teeth,
gooey gums over gummy gooies,
boo-hoos in place of boo-hooies.
