Things were in readiness, even the mouse...The pumpkins were lined by the front door with care
In hopes that Trick or Treaters soon would be there ...
Wrinkled witches hands reached sneaky and slow
To grab some of the treats piled up and ready to go...
Scary pumpkin heads watched with diabolical glee
So Pa in his witch hat
And me with nails painted black
Had just settled down for TV and a snack...
When what to did appear before our wondering eyes,
But a weiner dog dressed, in a Halloween disguise.
Oh he begged with his eyes and he howled most forlorn,
For Kit-kats, for Dots, for M&M's and candy corn.
To his great disgust we had to refuse
and when he turned around we saw he had a broom!!!!
And showing his fangs he gave us such fright...
when he barked out these words "It's almost Halloween night...
protect all the candy because I'm coming back"
And off he flew on his broom without getting a snack!
We went back in the house and were feeling quite wary.
Because it was almost Halloween and a hungry weiner dog is scary...
...and what we saw by his food dish gave us another great fright...
Ooooooh....there's nothing as scary on a Halloween night.
This is a re-run from a few years back! I thought it was funny and wanted to share it again, though.
Sadly, we are missing our weiner dog this year. Halloween just won't be the same without incessant barking and escape attempts to get candy!
