We had the talk again this year:[pirate, firefighter, robots, bats]
While opening our box of Halloween gear:[candles, spiders, three witches hats]
I seized up one black and pointed hat
laughed a loud cackle, and said that is that!
A witch is what I will be
so Cody said and me and me!
(since he is a he – a warlock/wizard he shall be)
To Carter we looked, he let out a roar
a great big tiger roar-roar-roar
and then some more and more and more
roar, Roar, ROAR!!
Ok, I thought this shan’t be hard
we have a hat we need a cape
a wizard wand will seal his fate
Some spiders hanging off his clothes
some stars some moons, something that glows
Now for the tiger – I grasped at straws
orange clothes, black tape, some tiger paws?
(I felt with my lack of craftiness there were sure to be some serious flaws)
While thrifting we found a small tiger suit, it even had a tail!
Carter said no face paint, but a mask will surely not fail
Orange paint, black pipe cleaners, elastic string
I was weeks ahead, I wanted to sing!
But wait, but wait, but wait, but wait…
We do not have a paper plate?!?
You are channeling your inner Dr. Seuss!!
I can’t wait to see pictures of you all, all dressed up for Halloween.
For some reason I dislike buying costumes so end up fretting about the making of costumes every year. They usually turn out alright.
Great poem! I can feel Hallowe’en coming! 🙂
Thanks. I am looking forward to our yearly trip to a pumpkin patch – then it is officially Halloween time!
Nice limerick.Enjoy the holiday & costumes.
Thank you. I am sure we will all have a good time.
Can’t wait for Halloween!
It is fun, isn’t it! 🙂
And you said you aren’t crafty.
The craft of word play is rather moot, when one is in need of a tiger suit. 😉
The picture of the tiger mask is what I want to make. I have everything but the paper plates so back to the store.
Ha ha, that’s awesome! Amazing rhyming! Some craft with paper and scissors, some craft with words! ;o)
Thank you, it was pretty fun to write! And I must clarify, the picture of the tiger mask, which has a link attached to it, is from a website and is what I am planning on making for Carter. I can not even dream that mine will turn out that nice. But the imperfections of my homemade Halloween costumes make them that much more special – or at least that is what I tell myself!
To turn a paper plate mask into a rhyme! Wow. Now that’s what I call a gift. We await to see the other creative creations for Halloween. xx Sharon
Ah, thank you. I tend to have no idea what I will write about until it pops into my head. For some reason the fact that I had spent time and energy collecting everything I needed for this little art project only to find out that I had no paper plates sounded much better in rhyme. 🙂
Fantastic post! I love the poetry of it!
Thanks, it was rather fun to write.
