#981 – Dressed Up Like You

Dressed Up Like You
Backstory: Every other Trick or Treater was eaten.

Ugly Ernie

There’s ugly Ernie Mumblemush –
bad looking to the bone.
You know that he’s approaching you
when people scream and moan.

His eyes are black as beetle backs,
his nails are sharp as swords.
In contests for disgustingness
he always wins awards.

His hair’s a mangled, tangled heap –
a messy mount of knots.
His skin is blotchy, cracked, and scaled
with pinkish-purple spots.

His odor is deplorable.
His teeth are brown and green.
I think that I’ll dress up like him
this year for Halloween.

Thursdays are dog days!
