Halloween Horror!

Woof, woof, woof!

Fido's gone barking mad

He wants to warn you of this poem

And he said to me (a talking dog!)

'Mark that poem 18+'


Ohh, he is right

Cos I gotta tell ya of something so horrific

You'll need to be prepared for it

It don't just apply to Halloween

Every day is scary with this.....

Fido will join in with this poem

With interspersed 'Woofs'

Woof, woof! (do ya hear him?)


It's worse than witch's brews

But I got no eyes of newts or legs of toads for ya

Who wants to eat that muck?!

It's a dark thing I'm gonna tell ya

Darker than a black cat in a coal cellar at midnight

(It was having a sleep in there)


Whatever can it be?

Woof, woof! Fido knows

He is hiding behind the sofa now


Tell us what it is, Orchi 

Well, have three guesses...


Having to watch a week of 'Eastenders?' - Nope.

They need no face masks on there for Halloween!


Adding water to my whisky? - Nope.


Recalling the terrible events of 1066

When I told Harold to look up at the wrong moment? - Nope.


Enough waffling - time to reveal...

Woof. woof - see, Fido's warning you, that....


"I'm gonna sing!!!"

(Hee hee hee)

    The song I wish you to sing is the one that I ask bagpipers to play, I want them to play and you to sing 'Far Away' - the further away the better!

      Thanks Gold. And bagpipes may drown out my singing too!

        Once Orchi is out of earshot he could write lyrics for John Barry's The Beyondness of Things.

              Wish I was patient enough to have uploaded my Halloween themed poem on Halloween but your poem is better since you had a video and some woofs. I would also be sad if someone was talking to me in French.

              • orchidee

                Thanks Theta. You can upload your Halloween poem now, or any time of year.

                • Theta the scholar

                  If you say so

                • Neville

                  I made a point of being the first to read your Halloween Horror for Halloween 2019 just in case I am not around come next October 31st..

                  • orchidee

                    Oops, hope you will be around N. Oh well, best to be early for things, I say! lol.
