Spooktober Festival Blog Hop!

Cobwebs draped the darkened porch
Jack-o-lanterns glowed with a tiny torch
Ghosts danced merrily from stakes in the yard
Stew bubbled in the cauldron with vegetables they had charred
Razors glittered in the moonlight
While the barber prepared his chair for the evening shaving fight.


Okay, so I don't do horror very well.

  4. You didn't have to do horror but you did a great job! I wonder if this barber is related to Sweeny Todd that sneaky devil. Lets hope they don't serve meat pies.

    1. Thanks, Donna! Funny thing is, I go to a barber instead of a beautician! They do a great job, really. No shaving, though:)

  9. I enjoyed this short tale. It's almost a poem. If it is a poem, never mind me, I'd be hard pressed to write poetry.

  12. So cute! My husband wrote a poem for the challenge too. (And I don't do horror very well either; it always ends up being more feel-good than horror.)
