Killer Halloween...

Darkness lies upon the land
like a chill and clammy hand
No breath does stir, nor fill a breast
Icy cold grips your chest

Eyes strain to see, familiar sights
here on this eve, this hallowed night
Whispers of my victims' voices
ask me why; they were my choices

You were deserving, I holler out
The graven-stones repeat the shout
Now the simple windy sigh
makes me scream in reply

You did all those nasty deeds
and on your body I did feed
You are now and here immortal
I say to them and I chortle

You were tasty, such recipes!
And it didn't hurt to hear your pleas
Mercy, asked; Please spare me now
Oh no, said I; I've made a vow

To cleanse the earth of scum like you
I am Killer, that's what I do!
As I chew your flesh, I reminisce
see your face, at Killer's kiss

I told them all, I don't regret
those tasty dishes I have et
I left them to their own devices
I came to party with the nicest

Now let's sing, come dance with me
Let us praise our victories
You are right where you belong
Come on folks, let's sing a song

I made finger-food, for you to eat
Long-pig is the favored meat
Jellied eyeballs, veal of bitch
Don't eat too much; it's so rich!

We'll celebrate, eat all this stuff
I'm sorry, but the steaks are tough
They got a little over-done
Not so rare, as you like them, “Hon”

But I've got sausage, spicy-hot
just see what else, that I have got
Scrambled brains on toast is great
Bet they're best you ever ate

Bloody Mary's, Zombies, ale
Come on son, you look pale
Don't fall down, we'll think you're dead
Stay alert, to keep your head

One less guest leaves here tonight
Just disappearing from our sight!
No one knows just where they went
After all, we all were bent!

But in the smoke-house, curing there
hangs a red-head by the hair
How it got there no one knows
Guess that's just the way that it goes

Well, the dawn is coming, and the soiree's over
Scribbler Stan still howling, a little bit like Rover
Leash him now, take him out to pee
Tomorrow, I'll set him right for free

Nice to see you Love, Cat and Anna Too
Lon, a Britty-girl, by the name of Lou
Moon Man ate his fill, said he had to run
Wonder if he knew, he missed out on the fun

I saw an Elf, Seren, was there
Hooded Stranger sans the hair
The whole old gang, threw magic spells
We trashed the room and raised Hell

The Queen of Norway, Ian too, had left us early on
They said to say hello to you, hoped your costumes won
Drinks defying a description, spilled upon the floor
Scraps of food destruction, lay writhing by the door

This party was a big success, I really had a ball
I'm hoping that, this here mess, doesn't bother Paul
We sang old tunes with some glee
We read the runes, drank Daiquiris

Now I'm all tuckered out, I must be getting old
I hear the fading, boisterous shouts, the sky is turning gold
Black shadows cross in relief, against the coming dawn
They wave and yell; goodnight my friend, as I start to yawn

I'll mop the floors and clean the yard, maybe in the morn
Cans of Coors, we partied hard, eating candy-corn
Sticky stuff, I don't want to know, stains the tablecloth
I think that one, from cousin Esker, eating all those moths

Goodnight my friends, glad you came, this fete was really great
I'm worn out, don't know my name, I guess because it's late
So closes out another night, I'm going off to bed
I close my eyes against the light, and hold my aching head

if I didn't have my friends there. I've missed you too! Glad you liked the poem and glad that you have a special reason to like Halloween. It is my most favorite holiday. I love seeing the kids in costume and will be dressing up for a party at my sister's house. I'm going to be a mountain-man this year. My wife is going to be Killer! She is dressing up in a chef's costume and going to carry a cut off foot and have a bloody cleaver! We are going to write Killer on her chef's apron with stage blood and she will have a beard and moustache and a big scar on her cheek. I am going to take some pictures and try to post them on F.B. Will try to get to read some of the most recent poems of everyone and will comment. ~ Love and higgest bugs ~ Gee

Honest critique and comments shouldn't hurt.

This was a lot of fun to read, one hell of a party I'd say. Can't say that I liked the menu though lol
Great tribute to Halloween

I love my friends here at Neo. and it was great having some of you at my party. I wish that I could have included everyone, but it would have been such a long poem that I would have had to post it on two different days! LOL
Next party Killer throws I promise that there will be something for everyone! At least some veggies, untainted by the meat. Love ya, ~ Gee

We miss you. Nevermore has waited to reappear. She took.a bit of a break.....perhaps she will see killer in.her travels. They have catching

Killer should have taken all
or is he waiting for a ball.
Where he can mingle with the crowd
and one by one wrap them in a shroud.
I await the day When I can say
I dined with Killer in a special way.
Take care young Gee
and think of me
as you wend your life's journey through.
Yours as always Ian.T or is it Digit we shall see.

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

welcome to dine with us anytime, Ian and Digit. Just let us know what your favorite meal is and we will take care of the rest! Killer will take the baddies as long as they are there for the taking. The ones at this party were all friends though and he wouldn't think of eating a friend! But he and I will serve them the bad guys at parties like this. Thanks Ian, ~ Gee

Hello old friend,

I loved popping in to find this Halloween Jem! What a nice read. I am so glad to hear killer is going strong and I loved his rythem and ryhme.. I do have an idea or two. But I forgo those in favor of saying how much I have missed you! And I notice that even when not in the list of those wonderful friends you still with out meaning mention the DAWN, so I chose to think that even when not around I creep in to the corners of the mind begging not to be forgotten... although I have not been around I still think of you regularly, with love and affection.

Miss you bunches, and maybe I will try to come around more. I do enjoy it.

Love Julie

Apart from it being a great poem for Halloween, I really needed the info on Killer. As I have commented to you, I'm trying to create another group of people to rival the serial killers for a fun write. Since Killer has already been chosen to be one of Digit's companion, what do you think about joining me and Ian to write linked poems on the subject? That is, if you want to....


it sounds like fun! Killer says he's glad to participate. ~ Gee
