Twas the Night Before Halloween

The following is a 100 word story for the Halloweensie story contest. Enjoy!

Twas the night before Halloween

In a haunted house

Doctor Frankenstein stirred

Along with his reanimated mouse

Donning his mask

To bake Halloween treats

Monstrous cupcakes

That were monstrously sweet

Topping them with frosting,

Skeleton sprinkles and more,

Piled so high

They dripped on the floor.

When out on the porch

There arose such a clatter

He crept to the door

To see what’s the matter.

In a line

Down to the street

Little goblins and ghosts

Waited for their treat.

As they each got a cupcake

And faded from sight

He called, “Happy Halloween!

And have a spooktacular night!”
