October Scene

In the dead of night


All spooky things come onto the scene


Creeping up behind you


To wreak havoc in your dreams


Zombies rise up out of the grounds


Of the cemetery making low grumbling sounds


Male corpses escort their brides


Down the darkened street


With worms and insects crawling out of their heads


And all over their feet


Vampires break open their coffins


Turn into bats and begin to fly


In search of the fresh smell of blood


That they consume of which they can’t deny


Frankenstein awakens on the experiment table


Knocks his creator out cold


Then he embarks on a journey to haunt people and to let


His true scare tactics unfold


Black cats come out of dead end corners


Stroking on lookers with bad luck


Diminishing all good spirits


To fade away into the dust


Black crows start flying out


In pitch black skies


Ready to strike


At all the curious little eyes


Werewolves creep out from


Within the depths of the forest


If any piece of human flesh walks by the hunger of these creatures


Won’t cease to flourish


Demons sneak into the souls


Of numerous individuals alike


To start a spiritual war putting them through


Extreme anguish throughout the night


Ghosts start haunting empty rooms


Rats crawl from left to right


Ravens sit on top of scarecrows screeching


Leaving the whole neighborhood in fright


Owls hoot loudly while


Sitting on tree branches


Warlocks come flying on their pitchforks that Lucifer gave them


Before he was dropped from Heaven’s stances


Mummies awaken from


Their Egyptian tombs


Wrapped up in several bandages


Expelling decaying bodily fumes


Gargoyles erupt shedding


Their skins of stone


Any signs of mercy


They will not condone


Witches boiling cauldrons of poison


To give to dumb and blind pedestrians


Headless horseman lurk around


Installing fear into grade A thespians


When all of these creatures unite from east to west


You don’t stand a chance prepare to meet your death
