Our Favourite Haunt – Day Twenty-Five – #NaPoWriMo21

Hope you are all well?

Our prompt for today (optional, as always) is to write an “occasional” poem. What’s that? Well, it’s a poem suited to, or written for, a particular occasion. [from napowrimo.net]

My melancholy side collaborated with my witty one, and produced the below:


Dearly beloved

We gather today

To steal all their chocolate

And then float away.

We might be detected,

But we won’t care,

We’ll blame it on ‘kids’

(Although that’s unfair).


These silly earth-bounders

Never think hard

About what’s around them,

And they discard

All of the evidence

Pointing to contrary,

We aren’t malevolent –

Playful not scary.


So! Go have your fun

Out in the sun,

Tip over their ice

And give them cold bums.


Annoy their doggies,

Perturb the cats,

Knock over dustbins

And scatter the rats.


Purloin all the bedclothes,

Throw spoons in a heap,

Jump into the toybox

Possess a stuffed sheep.


Make all the curtains

Whoosh! Like in a movie,

Whip up rotten fruit

For a furry smoothie.

Then pretend you’re exorcised,

Become all quiet –

(Meet back here in August

For our next planned riot).


I hope none of you have been sitting in mysterious ice puddles or cleaning up mouldy fruit residue today!

I have been doing a bit of decluttering, so it has looked a little like a poltergeist has been roughing things up in Youngest’s room…

Take care and please join me tomorrow to see what the prompt will be for Day 26!

    Reminded me of Halloween. Especially with the sweets outside on the steps, trying not to get caught with your hand in the bowl.
