Hallows Eve Ballad by Jade April

Hallows Eve Ballad

To my fellow werepoets and literary ghouls,
to my elven wordsmiths and ghost-writers on the move,
to my wordy witches, goblin letter stitchers,
vampy sentence fixers, spoken word warlocks,
psychic poet prophets, zombie bringers of sonnets,
dead poets’ societies, alchemy lyricists,
poetry slam misfits, grim linguistics,
haiku sorcerers, you demons of cipher,
cult of co-writers, shape shifting word shapers,
you stiltskins of contracts to be obeyed,
you shadows casting words that make light afraid,
gatekeepers of spells, devils with words fit for hell,
familiars, dark muses inspiring what we say,
skeleton crawlers, wraith callers,
monsters of dialect play, happy Hallows Eve,
my ghoulish literary kin, have a hauntingly great day!
