Mean Halloween

Poem By David Ritter

Concerned, I said 'yes.'
I hung up the phone.
This Halloween night
I would be alone.

I just received word,
at home I must stay.
A scary monster,
was headed my way.

It wanted the kids.
This, my greatest fear.
I warned the children,
as evil grew near.

They had such courage,
as they hugged me tight.
One had to remind me,
'Turn on the porch light! '

I flipped on the switch
as I looked outside.
The creature was coming,
there was no time to hide.

The house began to shake,
as it approached the door.
I wasn't ready
for what was in store.

The strangest thing
my eyes ever saw,
was dressed like a clown
my ex mother-in-law!

'Let's go trick-or-treating! '
she said with a smile.
'Start passing out candy
we'll be back in awhile.'

My Precious Daughter (Revised)

Sitting here all alone
thinking, just how much you've grown
You're growing up, you're almost two
My joy the first time holding you

What Am I To Do?

My sweet Jesus I call out to you.
Oh sweet Jesus what am I to do?
If ever I needed you now is the time.
Search my heart I'm sure you will find.

The Hustle

There once was a man,
who loved to play pool.
They called him 'Sure Shot.'
He thought he was cool.

Unwanted Love

I rest here in my mommy's womb,
a home I'm pleased I found.
Unaware of a coming doom,
I'm sleeping safe and sound.

My Best Friend

I want you to meet my best friend.
I've known him for many a year,
and his love for me knows no end,
with strength like that whom shall I fear?
