The Horror Story

 

 I bought the book of horror stories back home

from the local library, but that evening one 

of the stories escaped from the book, and crept 

around the house all night.

  It scared the mirror blind, and the windows and

the doors flew open, as they tried to get away. It

frightened the furniture so bad that the tables and

chairs ran off and hid in the basement.

  My bed was petrified to death, and the chamber

pot beneath it began to cry, and my straw broom

did scream and scream and beg to to die.

  Yes, the Horror Story did creep around all night,

and by morning my house and I were physical and

nervous wrecks. I didn't know what to do. Should 

I call the police, the army to get rid of it? How was 

I going to stop it causing more havoc and mayhem?

  And then I got a crazy idea, I turned on my old T V

and tuned it to the news. The Horror Story was so 

terrified it fled back into the book! So beware those

spooky tales least they escape and cause you harm!
