Halloween Countdown Day 27: Getting Ahead

Getting Ahead

Skeletons rattle and bones tattle
Giving away an unnatural presence
Deep inside the great mausoleum

Long since dead, missing his head
His animated frame lurking about
Waiting for a suitable replacement

Ready to snatch any head that’s a match
Many, unsuspecting, have wandered by
But, lucky for them, he’s quite choosey

It’s okay during day, but at night stay away
From the great mausoleum he haunts
Always there, watching those who pass

If you do so, mind you, keep an eye out behind you
‘Cause you’ve got good head on your shoulders
And you wouldn’t want him getting ahead
