Friday Fictioneers: A Tale for Halloween

three_chairs

Come nightfall, I’ll slip into one of those three chairs.

At first, people will think I’m a pretend vampire, outdoors enjoying Halloween. Then some youth dressed as a ghost will say, ‘Hey, cool outfit.’

And his lithe girlfriend, kitted out like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will compliment me further. ‘Spooky makeup and classy fangs.’

These hot-blooded revellers will fit the two empty coffins back at my crypt to perfection.

Would you care to join me?’

In life, I was a gambler; so too, am I in death. The street light. The window. Will they notice too late that I’ve no reflection?

For the Love of Haiku

UK ruled by ghouls–
the Coalition unmasked.
Military coup.

Just couldn’t resist this one — only joking guys, so please don’t come and arrest me! I’m just having some wonderfully harmless fun over at http://allaboutlemon.com/2012/10/27/for-the-love-of-haiku-8/

And a big thankyou to adollyciousirony, who says “Since All Saints Day Celebration is coming, how about some Halloween Haiku?” Do step over to the link above to read some crazily creepy verses, and, perhaps, contribute one of your own.

Also, a big thankyou to the art game players, who put together that brilliant but insane Halloween picture. Do have a look at http://allaboutlemon.com/art-game/ag-w31-haunted-house-lobby/ and see who is personally responsible for each of the party’s guests.
