BY the light of the Full Moon on a blustery all Hallowes' night, I was wandering through the Old Church yard and received a most terrible fright!

For there, behind an Olde Gravestone I glimpsed a Skeletal hand. My blood ran cold as I tried to make Quick Haste, you'll understand!

AS i made my way to the creeking old gate, the moonlight turning Dull, my terror was complete when I saw, floating behind me, the chattering SKULL!!
In my dream I sweat with fright
a blob of lava oozed in the night
I screamed and yelled, but no one came
I tried to run, my feet felt lame

As it came closer, I took note
flat it crawled, it did not float
I stood tall, proud and brave
before this thing, would not be knave

No regal blob would sag as such
no craven thing would I fear much
The sign I saw it made me blush
"made in China"? this crap I'll FLUSH!

Oh, there's the door again.

Lets see who it is.
Sarah Palin and a gaggle of kids.

That makes 12 Palins, but what the hey,
some may have been Tina Fey.

I feel sorry for that nerdy boy that
dressed up as a Lava Lamp.
It must've sounded like a good idea...

Quote the Raven "Buy a Lava Lamp made it China? - Nevermore!"
Beware, the ghouls who BOO!
Floating silently,
Like balls of goo...
Well, what a lame turnout - I guess this what happens when there is no prize! You greedys sons of.. guns.
Given the small turnout, I dont think we need any official poll, just a head count. Post your votes in this thread.

I vote for killerkeith's. Very clever, lava related, and a surprise ending! Just like any good halloween flic.

I vote killerkeith too!
OK, I know that it's too late...but I just pulled this out of my ear, so I thought that I'd share.

Halloween creeps up on a black cat's feet.
Children are lurking - dressed for a treat.

Time for decorations, here and then there.
Anything that will give the kiddies a scare!

Bring out the lava lamps-the orange and the black!
Once I get started there's no turning back!

Skeletons hanging here! A ghost flaps in the breeze!
The terror alone should bring them to their knees!

Amongst these creatures, scared and alone,
I dream of my safe and cozy home.

For all that I desire on this spooky night,
Is to bask in the glow of my lava lamp light!

I posted the following on Mark Goo's page yesterday, I should have put it here

Thanks Mr. Goo;-). I expected a lot more input from long-time goo-heads, and a lot of competition. I didn't even know what I was going to write until I was finished! I thought my poem would be humorous and get everyone on the ball. Thanks All!

Very good "Bert" I would vote for yours!

This was a fun one!  I was just a newbie then ;)
