This poem was inspired by this wonderful drawing by Kira of Kira’s Sunday Scribbles.

I have also included in my poem the following word prompts:
The Haunted House
As I walked into the place
I saw a strange face
On the mantlepiece wall
The eyes followed me around
And to my horror I found
A man standing there in the hall.
He wore a Ghoulish disguise
And I hate those guys
So, I ran away up the stairs
With a chainsaw he chased
But I had him outpaced
And I hid and said a few prayers.
I pulled open a drawer
Then fell through the floor
And landed on a mattress below.
How the crowds laughed!
For it wasn’t witchcraft,
It was all part of a Halloween show.
