Mean Halloween

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.'
