Beware the war that’s sure to come,
Looming overhead like a vulture.
Or else you will find yourself caught in the middle,
Of course, should you ignore my warning
Death with surely await you.
Written by Wasteland Explorer
I woke up this morning,
with feathers instead of skin.
I knew the day was going bad,
against this I could not win.
I tried to climb out of my bed,
to lift my tiny head
But I forgot about my cat,
too late for me, I’m dead.

All Hallows’ Eve
It’s again that time of the year
where we all live in wicked fear.
A time for us to believe
in All Hallows’ Eve.
O, I wish I had the time,
to dress up like a villain,
a zombie, vampire, or witch.
But hell, I haven’t got the time,
I survive only to make this rhyme.
So enjoy All Hallows’ Eve,
As come trick or treat, we all believe.
Our short poetry spotlight highlights the trickery of death from three great writers. From the darkness of Rae-Chan’s short poetry to the light trickery of Wasteland Explorer’s, there’s a solid range to suit all for this Halloween. It comes at the perfect time too, as we prepare to carve our own pumpkins or Jack o’ Lanterns. Spooky! If you enjoyed our thematic poetry spotlight, why not view our other issues such as, “The Warmth at First Light” and “Strength in Mind, Body and Spirit”.
