MUST USE THE FOLLOWING WORDS (or a variation of each): Goodies, Goosebumps, Glow-In-The-Dark
Here is my entry:
NOT THE COSTUME I WANTED (WC 91)
By Michelle S. Kennedy
Goodies and goosebumps— it’s Halloween night.
My costume will give you a scare!
I might be a witch or a zombified man.
Or the evil IT Clown with red hair.
How ‘bout a ghost who can glow-in-the-dark?
Or something where blood trickles down—
A guy with an axe that is stuck in his head
and stitches that make up a frown.
In walks my mom with a mask in her hand.
My scheme has been suddenly banned!
“You’ll look very cute being a Groot!”
But CUTE isn’t what I had planned…
