Poetry Friday, Cruella, Lucy, and Wyld Style



A snippet of this Halloween at the Edmistens: 

Halloween At Our House
by Karen Edmisten

Lucy Ricardo,
Cruella de Vil --
These are the people
You'll see if you will

Come to my house
On Halloween night.
They'll dish out the chocolate,
Not give you a fright,

Unless fakey red hair
And wigs scare you to pieces...
Then do plan on screaming
And tossing your Reese's.

(The fur coat's a fake,
There's no need to protest
And Vita-Meata-Vegamin's
Really the best.)

Ramona's cool get-up
Is Lego's Wyld Style
But I just keep calling her
("Mom!") Wild Child.

Atticus carefully
Plans out the route,
Scopes out the best candy,
And finds all the loot.

My costume, as usual,
Will be the bomb.
I'm gonna go dressed
As a homeschooling mom.

~~~~~

The Poetry Friday round up is at Teacher Dance.  Happy Halloween!

All fun, and funny, but 'tossing your Reese's' is the cleverest rhyming I've seen in a while, Karen. Your Halloween sounds awesome!

Thanks, Linda! My kids have always been heavily into costumes. :)

Ha! Fun poem. Sounds like you and the girls are all set for a spooktacular evening. Will Atticus be dressing up too? :)

Karen Edmisten said...

Yes, Jama, Atticus will be dressed as an English teacher! It's a scary costume if you're a student who struggles with grammar and usage.

Yay for Homeschooling Mom costumes! :)

Bridget, I didn't expect to like the Lego movie so much, but it was terrific. Happy Halloween!
