More Frightening Than Fiction


Double, double
toil and trouble
the coffee burns
and oatmeal bubbles

I’m late for work
on All-Hallow’s week
when did holidays
become so bleak?

Won’t get candy
I gotta get gas
wear a costume?
I’m in last week’s

Want to Time Warp
or Monster Mash
but what’s more frightening:
Grooving out to Thriller
or the thought of
no cash?

No, instead of haunting
I’ll just ghost away
another zombie shambles
to the promise of
prey pay.



Alright, alright. I know, it’s Monday and that was an extremely corny poem but give an old girl her woes, won’t you?Β  Just thought I’d like to give my protest for growing up, despite the fact I’m as bogged down and out of the fun as they come. Still, I can always raise a hoot in my writing, can’t I?

Anywho, here’s to hoping your day flies by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

    1. Ohh, aren’t they semi depressing some times? I swear I want to quit some days and hide out in a blanket fort. Anywho, I hope your Monday went well enough and thanks a million for both the read and the comment πŸ™‚
