Hello everyone! Time for my entry to Susanna Hill’s annual Halloweensie Contest. Rules: 100 words or fewer, must contain some form of the following three words: cauldron, shiver, howl. I consider my entry a motivational picture book in 86 words, LOL.
S.O.S. (Save Our Souls)
Scarecrows flip-flop through the meadow.
Goblins plunk a creaky tune.
Skellies shiver ’round the cauldron,
glowing fiercely like the moon.
All the ghouls have gathered
for this once a year retreat,
to a howling werewolf beat.
Then they pull out pens and postcards,
settle down and take a seat.
Time to get right down to business—
No, NOT going Trick or Treat!
What brings these souls together,
casting spells and writing notes?
Spreading one important message:
Your country needs your votes!
OK, so maybe this is a motivational picture book for little civic-minded citizens….
