a long Halloween poem I switched to the brevity of Halloween haikus. Read my 8 Halloween haikus below, then leave your own Halloween haiku (a poem of 5 syllables / 7 syllables /5 syllables) in the comments or on Twitter using the hashtag #HalloweenHaiku.
Halloween decor: / I sweep away real cobwebs / to put up fake ones.
Trick-or-treat candy: / Chocolate disappears fast. / Smarties last ’til May.
I’m just a Batgirl / Standing in front of a door / asking for candy.
Darn, jack-o-lantern! / I tried to carve a pumpkin / but cut my finger.
If you want candy / At least put on a costume, / Stupid teenagers.
Read the epitaph / On the tombstone in my yard. / Is your name spelled right?
If you are afraid / To trick-or-treat at my house / No candy for you!
When is Halloween? / It’s October 31st / Like it always is.
