Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge Fright & Night

With consternation

Children step up to the door

Shouting “Trick or Treat

Are the decorations fake

In the dim light, they aren’t sure

    • My sister decorates with bloody body parts in trees, zombies, rats, tombstones, etc. This year, she added a woman who had her head chopped off (sitting there, holding her head in her lap) a full sized coffin with bony hands reaching out and a freaky little girl trick or treater… most of the kids were terrified of the headless woman but intrigued because the woman was holding the bloody head. The parents didn’t help by teasing the kids, but hey, my sister is a master artist at this stuff.
