VERSE WITHOUT MUSIC

LAST HALLOWEEN, THE THINGS I SEEN,
I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES.
A BOOGIE MAN FROM ZOMBIE LAND,
HE CAME TO HAUNT THE TOWN.
SO HE WENT UP TO THE HAUNTED HOUSE,
WHERE THE GHOSTS WERE ALL AROUND.
THEY SHOUTED AROUND AS THEY SAW HIM COME,
TO HELP THEM HAUNT THE TOWN.
BUT THE WITCH CAME IN UPON HER BROOM,
AND SHE RODE AROUND THE ROOM.
AND SHE SAID TO THEM,
THIS WILL BRING YOUR DOOM.
AND THE RAFTERS CRACKED,
AND THE PLASTER SNAPPED,
AND THE WALLS CAME TUMBLING DOWN.
AND THAT WAS THE END,
OF THE BOOGIE MAN,
WHO CAME TO HAUNT THE TOWN.
