Frightened by Dane Cobain *Exclusive Poem*

By: Dane Cobain

Bex fell in love
with a pumpkin,
and when she tried
to trick or treat
she started singing.

She sang
the monster mash,
and she danced
the grim fandango
with a pocketful
of posies,
blew her nose
and reapplied
her make-up.

She made up
then told the neighbours’ kids,
“A trick in hand
is worth two treats
at the weekend,”
then she rang on doorbells
and ran away again,
we all fall down.

And Bex was dressed
like a wolverine,
because she had a dream
where Hallowe’en
seemed to mean something.

She seemed to mean
something evil,
a horrid orange
fireball in the sky,
lighting the night
and frightened.
