UNINVITED GUESTS

by John Yeo

Devils, Witches, Wizards, and Goblins too,
Rocking the night away.
A banquet was served of deviled kidney stew
As the monsters were at play.
Sour cream sauce and blood-red wine!
Mingled together in a heady brew
Kept the evil frivolity under way.

Bong! As a clang of the doorbell-gong.
Announced a late arrival,
A phantom butler answered the door.
Then jumped back in horror and fright.
There in a shining white clerical collar
Stood a ghastly frightful nightmarish sight
A priest stood smiling broadly.

~

The Party-Host, a satanic prince, looked hard,
Scrutinized the interloper closely.
“Who are you? Can I see your invitation card?
This is a private haunting party.”
The priest put his hands up in horror and said
“I am not here to party, I am here to complain.
Would you kindly keep the noise down

The noise in the graveyard is waking the dead.”

~

It was then the turn of the host to smile
As he motioned the priest to enter.
“Here is a special invitation card.
Stay with us for a while.
While we wait for our friends from the graveyard.
Stay and enjoy the party.”
