Halloweensie Fun

Ladies and Gentlemen!

The contest is fun and offers an opportunity to win great prizes. You, too, can enter--IF YOU DARE!
Basic Rules: Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children using the words candy, monster, and shadow. Full info on the contest link above. MUST be posted by midnight 10/31.

So--here goes, folks. We all know this is not great literature, but I tried. Did you?

The Monster’s Regret

The monster crept
Behind the kids,
As they went trick or treating.
The monster leapt
Upon a bag
Of candy corn for eating.
The children wept
For loss of sweets
And fear of monster beatings.
The monster swept
Away a tear
Of sorrow that’s defeating.
The monster stepped
Up to the kids,
His candy swipe deleting.
The monster kept
No candy corn.
To keep it would be cheating.
The monster slept
Quite well that night
In shadows and clean sheeting.

Happy Halloweening!
