So get your costumes on and read below, but you better boo prepared to trick, treat but don’t smell my feet because here is something good to read!

Witch’s Elixir

snip snap
plink plop
runny mead down the sides
smells, aromas
giving off a honeydew scent
mixed with death
rosemary and other
spices from a faraway land
stirred in, creating
snip snap
plink plop
a cackle
and crow’s feet
all the while
wondering at the
power of the
witch’s elixir

Happy Halloween!
