Pumpkin Punch

Beware chill winds come to call.
Demons leap from wall to wall;
Spirits float out of graves;
Sea monsters surf in on waves.
Witches offer tempting treats,
Deviled eyeballs, spicy sweets.
Pumpkin punch waits in the bowl—
One sip and Satan takes your soul!

  8. A timely reminder that Halloween is just around the corner. My grandson’s favourite time of year – and he’s only four! I love the image of the surfing sea monsters. 😉
