Halloweensie contest 2017

It´s time again for . . .

Susanna Hill´s 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest! YAY! 

Here is my entry

The Trick in The Treat

Corine Timmer

99 words

Once upon a time,

there was a bully

named Billy.

So wicked was he

that his sister brewed

a monstrous plan.

Before All Hallows´ Eve

in the shadowy shed,

she created special corn candy


2 cups powdered sugar

5 tablespoons powdered milk

A sprinkle of salt

4 tablespoons butter

2/3 cup corn syrup

6 rodent hairs

A pinch of crushed bones

Dried chili pepper, for the orange

Turmeric powder, for the yellow


Lac bug resin, for the glaze

At owl-light,

she delivered a tombstone with treats

to each accomplice

and smiled at the thought

of her brother´s face.
