Frightful Fun by Benji #SonnetSunday

At Halloween, I’d like to meet a ghost
because they’re spooky and exciting too:
a knight-in-armour ghoul would thrill me most;
I wouldn’t be scared, even if he said,’Whooo!’

I’d like to take a ride on a ghost train
with a headless driver and skeleton staff
serving mice and rats fresh from the drain
with witches’ brew to make passengers laugh.

I’d visit a haunted castle just for fun
with monsters hiding under every bed:
You might be scared, but I would never run
even from a horseman who had lost his head…

This is my favourite part of Halloween:
Imagining frightful things that make you scream!
