For fun, I’m entering Susanna Leonard Hill’s “Halloweensie” contest this year. The rules: write a children’s story about Halloween in 100 words or less using the words costume, dark and haunt.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
Too Much (97 words)
By Susanne Whitehouse
Costumed kids are on the prowl
Mummies stalk and werewolves howl.
Haunted ghouls walk side by side
With fairies, clowns and little brides.
Ring the bell for something sweet
Bags outstretched, yell “Trick or Treat!”
Two down the hatch and one to keep
Must get more loot, so time to creep.
From street to street and door to door
They still press on and ask for more.
With bellies full, but bags so light
The mood is dark this Halloween night.
Too much candy has made them sick
Next time less treat and a lot more trick!
