A Halloweensie Contest: Sneak-a-Sweet

It’s the Halloweensie Contest over at Susanna Leonard Hill’s Blog!

It’s scary!
It’s hairy!
You’d better be wary!
Why?

Because!!!! We could only use 100 words! And we had to use the word witch! And bat! And trick-or-treat! And it has to be for the littlest of goblins! See??? Scary! But, I conjured up a little something called Sneak-a-Treat. And to make sure you have the best Halloween ever…be sure to read the other scary entries HERE.

Sneak-a-Sweet
by Penny Klostermann

There was a little witch
who kept a little bat
high upon the top
of her little pointy hat.

Every Halloween
when she would trick-or-treat,
the little bat would swoop right down
and grab an extra sweet.

The bat knew this was sneaky,
impolite and , yes, uncouth—
But when your home’s a witch‘s hat
you MUST tend her sweet tooth!

    • Thanks! I love the entries, too! They are making for a very fun Halloween! You do have your work cut out….it’s scary how hard it will be to choose. I’m sure you and your assistant will do a great job. Hey…you could ask a witch for a “make-an-easy-decision” brew!
