A Halloween recipe
(Preparation, one year.  Cooking time, 8 hours)

Make no mistake when making start
and driving stake through vampire's heart,
for gory sauce, decant this blood,
lukewarm of course, congealed is good.

A snot-blocked nose, some chicken gizzards,
jam-filled toes from rotting lizards,
a corpses flesh stripped from its frame,
nothing too fresh, needs gentle flame.

Belly of snake,  sniffed bottom of dog,
beard of a sheikh, last croak of a frog,
entrepreneur's greed, innocent girl's eye,
that's all you need for dead man's pie.

Molly's ghost
Molly strolled through the park,
in a glow-in-the-dark
hoodie her daughter had bought her.
Creeping behind,
Halloween on his mind,
a naughty ghost looking to haunt her.

Wearing loose pumps,
it gave Molly goosebumps
when spied from the edge of her hoodie,
but it ran faraway
when she screamed at it, hey
go away mate, I'm one of the goodies.
