All Hallow’s Moon
written by: Nobby66
Earth mother’s querulous, cindered child
luminously spites hooks on oceans to and fro.
Magnetic manipulations, bewitching nocturnal sailors.
Dry-sulk weeps lunar silt’s dearth of bud or flower.
Party to Demonic, long shadow creeps, at October’s murky end,
when hocus-pocus harridans brew deathly blends
of hemlock, eye of newt and slimed vine wines,
spike the lurid, sacrificial, blood-wet acts.
Ghastly ghouls glee-greet Princess Phosphorescence.
Neck-gnarled converts homage-howl ‘Wolf!’
Undead rap on Dante’s underworldly door…
Beelzebub barbecues the tricked for a treat…
