31 Oct 2015 – Sheet Ghost

White sheets have always been the rage
on quiet streets and up on stage,
while dancing ’round a burnin’ cross,
or tricker treatin’ block by block.

But periwinkle? C’mon, kid!
It’s plain to see what you just did:
a quickie from mom’s laundry bin –
and not a speck of shame’s chagrin?

So here’s your dole, now move along!
You’ll win no prize with that thing on!
You’re much too old this night to roam,
so take your mama’s sheet back home!
