Trick or Treat Treasure!

Entering another writing comp. This time it’s Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie Contest.

The challenge: Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words skeleton, creep, and mask. My poem/story is below this little cutie 🙂

Trick or Treat Treasure

The skeleton is creeping

While everybody’s sleeping

Guilty heartbeat leaping

For the hidden candy jar.

The skeleton is sneaking

Dusty floorboards creaking

Pining, prowling, peaking

For the hidden candy jar.

The skeleton is grinning

Mask thrown off and spinning

Knows that he is winning

Here’s the hidden candy jar.

The skeleton is munching

Chewing, cracking, crunching

He’s feverishly lunching

From the hidden candy jar.

The skeleton is fleeing

He’s heard his Mummy peeing

Cannot bear her seeing

The EMPTY candy jar.
