Take two. I couldn’t resist the temptation to do another Halloweensie version as one of my Really Awful Rhymes. It was fun turning the mood around from the last line of the second stanza onwards.
It was the night of Halloween
The fiercest black cat ever seen,
Came strolling through the village square,
Scaring kids all gathered there.
Then they screeched in greater fear
When a witch, too, did appear,
Swooping from above, astride
Vacuum cleaner, long and wide.
‘Free rides for all,’ announced the cat;
‘Cackle! I have come for that,’
Said the witch, ‘so you can see
What fun to be a witch can be!’
Brave Tommy said, ‘I want to try!’
And soon they chased bats through the sky;
Then, waiting turns, the rest all sat
Through spooky stories from the cat.
