Here is my entry:


By Michelle S. Kennedy

Skelly from Skellington

dines on Beef Wellington,

only on Halloween night.

Covered in gelatin,

masking his skeleton,

Skelly cooks up his delight.

Buried bones hibernate.

Smells make them activate.

All rising up, taking flight.

Others might gawk at him,

tear him from limb to limb,

stealing his food just for spite.

Creepers haunt ghoulishly.

Skelly is coolishly

sneaking to stay out of sight.

Hiding clandestinely

lets him digest, you see—

really, he’d rather not fight.

Skelly from Skellington

eats his Beef Wellington

savoring every last bite.

Appetite pacified.

Totally satisfied.

No room for dessert… but he might!
