GHOULAH


The moon a waxing gibbous she,
illuminates this hallowed ground   neath
silhouettes’ of swaying trees,
and in this graveyard here stand I
and drool as little kids pass by
and know this night I will not gorge upon the dead,
but indecent feasts of kids instead.

Anna :o]

Björn at dVerse hosts Poetics tonight and of course we are to write of monsters!  The twist is that we should give voice to said monsters, and above is my offering.  Cheers for the inspiration Björn!

(Also shared with the good folk at Real Toads – cheers Magaly.)

Oh dear, I seem to have a bone stuck between my teeth…kids! :o]

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Macabre, with tongue in cheek, with severed hands in mouth, with fear for an appetizer and danger as a companion.

Dark and spooky for Halloween.

Children are definitely tastier-especially their legs😱😱

This is funny.
Loves them liddle kiddies,
they's my favorite meats.
tiny little noses,
crunchy liddle feets.

Kim Russell said...

I love the gibbous waxing moon but the child-eater is so nasty!

Nosaint said...

Eeek! I like the Goreyesque gleefully macabre tone.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I'm laughing so hard at Jane's comment, that I can hardly type. Mostly, because I was thinking along the same lines, and I always believe that I will be the sickest of them all.

Freaking creepy.

Love it! A classic.

Sumana Roy said...

It has the knowledge of these feasts as indecent, though :) Oh so cleverly put.

Marian said...

Yikes! Glad I'm reading this in the morning. I *love* that first line and the placement of "she" :)
