Broomsticks About


Tis that certain time of year,

when new signs do appear;

what it is they’re warning of

is oh, so very clear.


Those witches are all flying,

they’re out upon their brooms,

sometimes they get the impulse

to go with swoops and zooms.


The cats can cling on hard behind,

the witch is hands-on, that

only leaves one danger --

beware that pointed hat!


When walking out along the road,

there’s something you should dread;

that you’ll be good and blinded

when it lands upon your head!


So pick your path so carefully,

keep those eyes open wide,

and if you see a broomstick

just find somewhere to hide.

Road cones on the top of pine trees -- that's a picture to bring a smile. Thanks, Moa.

You have a devilishly funny and wicked sense of humour, Hullaballoo and it come through wonderfully in your writing. A really great little poem.

They tend to come in phases, Derina. No doubt there will be plenty more in the future. Thanks so much for giving this a read.
