Creepy Feast

Wormy green apples
Covered in caramel glue
Specially hand-made
By my great-aunt Lou
My sisters made popcorn balls
With something so vile
Last time they served them
They went up on trial
Uncle Rick’s soup in a cauldron
Is looking at you
I thought that it winked
Through the liquidy goo
Lady finger cakes
With real painted nails
Curled up and dried
Served up in pails
Next year – no relatives!
I’ll stay home alone
On Halloween night,
Watching "Twilight Zone"


Prompt #181 We Write Poems

Happy Halloween!


  1. I love the 'Twilight Zone'!
    One year I had the brilliant idea to make Chicken Finger Fingers.
    Just unbreaded thin boiled chicken strips with cut up olives, and peppers for finger nails served on a bed of pasta. :)

  2. To quote George Takei: Ooooh myyyyy. Them are some creepy relatives. I don't blame you for wanting to stay home. :)


    1. Thanks for tolerating them for a few moments! ;)

  3. Can't say I blame you for wanting to stay home. Love this poem, Denise.
