Witches Brew


Down in the depth of the scary forest

A witch was preparing her brew

This was the first time she’d made it

As she did not know quite what to do


She put in everything she could think of

From a bats wing to a toad that was pink

She stirred it up with her witch’s broom

And for good luck threw in the kitchen sink


She took a sip from her witch’s brew

Then decided to fly on her broom

But alas things didn’t go to plan

 Became dizzy as she flew round the room


Then out of the window and into the woods

Swerving in and out of the trees

By now her vision was erratic

As she was seeing in two’s and three’s


 Totally losing control of her broom

She hadn’t a clue what to do

Holding on for dear life

Wishing she hadn’t sipped her powerful brew


Her faithful cat called Boris was with her

She turned and asked Boris “What shall I do”

Boris by now was quite frightened

To be honest he hadn’t got a clue


The witch continued her frightening ride

Murmuring spells under her breath

Boris was saying a prayer

As they both journeyed on to the west


The witch decided to take drastic action

As she jump off her broom in mid air

By now Boris had lost the will to live

As he was hanging on to the witches hair


As they plummeted towards the ground

One last spell the witch did cast

To wish everyone a Happy Halloween

Then they both landed safely at last

  4. A Halloween poem – deconstructed Trying to write a scary poemFor the Writers’ Chest.So many ways to start,I wonder which is best. Do I go for ghoulish,Or something more refined?Do I make the horror clear,Or leave it to the mind? Then there comes the rhymingOf all those scary creatures.Zombie? Vampire? No rhymes.Do I focus on their features? And how to make things scary,In the structure of the rhyme?It’s hard to make the reader jumpWhen they can guess ahead in time. Maybe I should back offLeave this one to the writers.Poets are tender loversBut terrible monster fighters!
