The Vampire And The Witch

A vampire named Drack asked a witch, "D'you think I'd be able to hitch a lift on your broom, if you have the room my life it would surely enrich." The witch thought this odd, so replied "I think that your motive you hide, I know you would try to suck my neck dry if I were to give you a ride." "Oh no ma'am, that's not what I mean your blood wouldn't suit me - it's green, I will behave well so don't cast a spell and I'll treat you just like a queen." "Vampire, I think you are bluffing, my blood you soon would be quaffing, and you I don't trust to curb your sick lust, so sod off back to your coffin."

@Corbin5 Too true, and she'd be in no position to defend herself if he was behind her on her broom

His request was to no avail And doomed from the start to fail His night may be wrecked But what did he expect From a typical suspicious female

@Asylum You think he was misunderstood and he really didn't want blood that was slimy and green, (on that he's not keen) and his motive toward her was good?

@jaboUK She is certainly not being fair He just asked for a lift from her And do not forget He offered no threat But clearly she just does not care

Hey , that vampire sounded very gentlemanly, better behavior than most in this world, what a mean witch.

@sueznewz2 Thanks Sue - I wasn't sure if the myLot police would consider it swearing, but decided to risk it. It gives a good 'punch' to the end of the poem, doesn't it?

Ha, the old quarrel betwixt the vampire and the witch. One casheir asked a manager why witches ride brooms and the answer was because vacuums are too heavy. Not sure if that was made up or an old one. I've not heard it before that I can recall. Do kids in other countries go door to door for treats, Janet? I'm guessing not.

@MarshaMusselman I've not heard the one about the vacuum cleaner - it's good. We never get trick or treaters in my area, but I believe it's catching on a bit elsewhere.
