A Halloween Affair


Death doesn’t scare me
Dead doesn’t bother me.
And Undead,
I welcome warmly.

Lingering souls,
Find solace in my home.
Brainless as I am,
Zombies too, can roam.

After losing a mother
I am Hospitable to mummies.
I don't either mind
mannequins and dummies

Djinns and devils,
Fairies and elves,
The Reaper hiding
Under my shelves!

A joyous tale
Halloween tells
Except for these
dreadful doorbells

Shivers go down my spinal cord
As Life arrives at my door
Trying to 'Trick' me to greet
So deeper inside myself, I re'treat'
