Halloween - Jingle Poetry Happy Halloween Jingle!
A year my mother felt creative, and she was!
Months before, making three costumes
She was busy, cutting, taping, covering
And then, the final fittings!
My brother was a robot
Three boxes covered in tin foil
It was the most amazing work
We were so excited to try ours on
My Sister was the youngest
Small and petite, she was a pumpkin
Wires and fabric made her look so
Orange and BIG! A green hat for the stem
Me? I was a witch, dressed all in black
A brand new broom to carry
AND, a putty nose!
The broom would be used after, how frugal she was!
Then it came- HALLOWEEN NIGHT!
We dressed quickly with Mothers help
Excited to run out and get all our rewards and treats
We began to walk, old enough to go alone
Laughing and then, suddenly something went wrong
No more laughter, one by one we started to cry.
The robot shed tears first, he couldn't see and the boxes
Were awkward. I tried to soothe and encourage him - to no avail
Next, my little sister began to sob
The pumpkin suit cumbersome and too large to walk in
She couldn't even sit down, like the robot
Then, I started to cry, though I could move with ease
My putty nose kept falling and wilting
I would try to fix it but it only was misshapen
We all cried, walking up to houses
We didn't want to disappoint my mother who worked so hard
The Robot, the pumpkin and me, the worst Halloween ever!
