The 31 Days of Scary

The 31 Days of Scary – Day 29 – Edge of Town Poem

 At the edge of our town,
When the sun goes down,
There’s a fine, fine lady
In a black, black gown.
She wears a mouth-wide grin,
That’s a darkling frown,
When she gets a whiff of you
Coming anywhere around.
She can whistle up the dead
And she dances with the drowned.
You wouldn’t want to play with
The things that she’s found.
She can sing you to sleep
But you’ll wake up underground.
Shhh, at the edge of our town,
When the sun goes down,
There’s a fine, fine lady
In a black, black gown.
So, you’d better run and hide,
Because she’s coming right NOW!
