Not In A Minion Years

 

It sounded lots of fun when you said, ‘Let’s go Trick or Treating’,

I never even thought that there’d be monsters to be meeting.

 

You dressed up as the scientist, the one that was surely mad,

while I became the creature -- the idea that he just had.

 

We sorted out our costumes and we got in to the mood,

we’d go around the neighbourhood collecting lots of food.

 

You said we’d wait for darkness, then we’d set off along the path,

you promised that we’d have such fun, that it would be a laugh;

 

but what is that behind us, that now is giving chase?

I don’t like running through these woods as though we’re in a race.

 

Should we pause and take a little look, the screeching sound says ‘no’,

warning that we’d better turn towards home and then go.

 

But our pumpkin still is empty, we’ve not even got one treat,

perhaps we can just beat it, if we really move our feet.

 

The clanking and the creaking is increasing by the score --

we don’t have a choice but let our feet pound on this floor.

 

Something rises from a tree; gee, it’s just an owl,

it made me so damn frightened that I almost had to howl.

 

But look there in the distance, there’s a kind of light,

we might go ahead and make it; put an ending to this flight.

 

It’s Mrs Evan’s cottage, and she’s welcoming us in,

the creature that was in pursuit, passes with a din.

 

She sees that we are quite upset, she feeds us lots of treats;

she fills up our pumpkin with a great big pile of sweets.

 

We go out to her car and there’s a scraping through the gears;

we’d not thought we’d meet a monster – not in a minion years.
