Want a Piece of Candy?


All the kids in town
In their bright orange cloaks
And their hero masks
Beg candy from all my folks.

What they don’t know
Is that I make great goodies
Filled with razor blades
And start a rumpus with the mommies.

I cackle and escape by broom.


This was written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt Number 77.  I would like to acknowledge to all those Australians out there that I thought about writing needled strawberries rather than razor blade apples, but the syllables didn’t work out as well.
