We're having a Halloween Ball with invites sent out to you all, a dress code applies wear sheets and boo ties, or dress as a witch to enthrall. Before the Ball starts we'll have fun as into the streets we will run, we'll scare all the folk, (they'll know it's a joke) then back to the Ball when we're done. There'll be lots of i-scream to eat, spooketti will make us replete, hide and shriek we will play then we'll boogie away, and won't have to do trick or treat.

I have ma -scared my eyes And put on blood red lipstick Tied a jaunty boo tie Now, what mask do I pick? My gown is a bedsheet white That fits the dress code, I am sure we'll give them a fright When we run out on the road A night of sumptuous feasts And gory delights As we trick or treat At Jabo 's tonight See you soon

@responsiveme Arm's entered the spirit of things and around us all she'll run rings, in her master disguise and bloodshot eyes such fun to the party she brings.

@jaboUK No, not really. It just that I am from the West Midlands touching near to the border of Cymru North Wales. I used to watch "Corrie" a lot so that is where I pick up there accent. I also love "Eastenders" and take their accent off a treat if I say so myself as my Sister In Law is also a true Cockney and she only laughs at me. Right now luv ah must goo now gorra gerroff the line. Speak tomorrow so tired I am falling asleep here kid.

@Juliaacv Hi Julia - I told you I wouldn't be doing any more Halloween poems but this one sort of wrote itself. I had to post it tonight or else waste it, so sorry

@jaboUK I took some pictures of spiders on a roof that I was going to share that day, but time got ahead of me and I missed it.

@MarshaMusselman Yes, once the date has passed those sort of posts become superfluous, don't they?

Another neat one. If there is witches, you know I have to be a vampire. Witches get stitches. I make the worse jokes. Being your last poem was about a witch that did not trust a vampire.

Jabo making snacks
@jaboUK I decided against making tracks After learning about certain facts No party is complete With nothing to eat And I heard there will be no snacks You intended to brew quite a load But misread what the recipe showed You found eye of bat And milk of black cat But could not find a wing of toad

I-scream and spooketti what a delicious Halloween dinner. I would love to dress like a witch. I did in the past, I still have my black and red costume, not really scary.

@jaboUK We used to make a little party at home in Monte-Carlo, with only two or three friends who also had traveled many times to the United States. It was funny.

@YrNemo I have to admit that I didn't invent 'i-scream' - I saw it on the internet and decided to incorporate it into my poem.

@jaboUK I teased my children often when they were tiny. Whenever they said, 'mom, can we have ice cream?' I would ask them, 'are you sure?' When they nodded innocently, I said, 'OK, ready, I am going to scream soon, I scream, right?' Their faces were so funny... round eyes and a bit shocked!
