Fly me to my Room
by Manju B. Howard
With a trick-or-treat brew of sweets
making her tummy twitch,
Gail curled up in a cozy chair
wearing the pointy hat of a witch.
“Time for bed,” her mother cackled.
But Gail hugged her black cat instead.
“To bed,” her mother crowed,
while sweeping up bits of candy.
Gail shook her head.
“Spooky creatures want to find me.
They know I’m full of treats.
Orange clowns, pink bunnies and
wizards with wands will smell my feet
and think I’m something good to eat.
“Dear Mother Witch,
please take me on your broom
and fly me to my room.”
