Here is my entry:
GOULENTINE (WC 100)
By Michelle S. Kennedy
Ghoulentine wanted a mate by his side.
Someone to love— so he looked for a bride.
He searched high and low, and underneath too.
WHO would he find? He hadn’t a clue.
Slithering out, from behind an old shed,
Red steely eyes with a look of the dead…
Ah! She’s THE ONE. Love at first sight!
The wedding took place in fire that night.
Passionate flames burned every ember.
Halloween’s magic. An eve to remember.
Treats were passed out. The bride was a scare!
Goulentine beamed (and looked debonair.)
Masquerade music eerily played,
Together Forever— The ghost and decayed.
