Ten Scary Halloween Limericks

Here I present to you ten scary Halloween limericks. You may find some creepy, some funny, or others, just downright silly. However, if they manage to entertain you in some way then I am happy and satisfied. I hope you have a wonderful and scary Halloween.


It’s All Hallow’s Eve once again,
And so I take my haunted pen.
I hope I don’t fail
To write eerie tales
That will scare the bravest of men.


There once was a vampire named Drac
Whose preferred mode of dress was all black.
For a change one dark night
He dressed in all white,
And now there is no turning back.


Three pumpkins stood all in a row,
Each one lit by candles aglow.
They had carved mouths and eyes,
And they uttered loud cries
To scare trick-or-treaters, you know.


A witch and a ghost were good friends,
They did not embrace all new trends.
The witch still rode a broom
And the ghost, haunted rooms.
But they scared everyone in the end.


The werewolf did not embrace change.
He found his human form strange.
Underneath the full moon
He inhaled a balloon,
And he floated away out of range.


Frankenstein’s monster was sad
Because everyone thought him bad.
But between you and I,
He would not hurt a fly.
The Doctor, himself though, was mad.


The children could not wait to eat
The candy from this trick-or-treat.
Halloween’s a good time
To write a new rhyme,
But it still has to have a nice beat.


A ghoul, and a zombie named Ted
Tried to scare kids asleep in their beds.
They’d shriek and they’d shake
But the kids didn’t wake,
So they scared one another instead.


A black cat just wanted a laugh,
So ran across everyone’s path.
Until he got struck
By a garbage truck.
It wasn’t so funny by half.


I’m telling you that I am dead,
And sitting here’s my clone instead.
Do you believe me,
Or do you doubt me?
Or will you shrug and go to bed?

Longtime poet but not in the traditional technical sense. I enjoy rhyme but like to experiment and dabble in many different forms and maybe even make up some of my own. There is always a message or lesson I want to promote through my writing, for that reason, my poetry generally shies away from the abstract and obscure. After a lot of procrastinating I have finally self-published my first eBook of poetry "I Laughed a Smile" at Lulu.com. Now I find myself branching out and experimenting with short fiction. I have also been fortunate to have two poems chosen to be made into songs and recorded. The first "On the Road to Kingdom Come" by Al Wordlaw, and the second, "If I Could Write a Love Poem" by award-winning Israeli/British singer Tally Koren. I am also finding my services increasingly in demand as a freelance writer and I have ghost-written the text for a number of children's books and educational tutorials. It has taken me many years of searching and restlessness to realise that my life's passion is to write. It saddens me that I wasted so many years not devoting to that, but thinking positively, the experiences gained over those years are now wonderful material for my stories and poems. I want to try to bring a new focus on poetry and try to make it appealing to a new generation of young people and those who thought they never liked or understood it before.
