31st October 2018 – Continuing our theme of Halloween the midweek word-prompt on our other site Weekly Prompts is Scary Costumes and was chosen by GC.
We discussed the Halloween Prompts and I planned my posts in advance, but I had other things on my mind, and I’m now thinking that my response to the Saturday photo challenge may have been better suited to today and vice versa.
On the other hand, it’s just a bit of fun, and this is Halloween, so, leaving costumes aside, what could be more scary for All Hallows Eve than my edited re-blog of last year’s tale of the Yorkshire Witch!
The Yorkshire Witch
Far away in Yorkshire, in the land of puddings, hills, and dales, nestles a tiny little cottage where visitors cannot tell tales.
A witch lives there who loves to cook, but always from her special book.
And when she’s angry, she’ll use a spell, so my advice is run like hell! Ducks have been turned to pewter and squirrels into stone!
And in her cauldron, rounded and black, the witch cooks up a special snack.
Green human soup made from rotting flesh and occasionally it’s almost fresh!
A brew of louts and sprouts with teens and beans, are stirred into the stew.
Making up the dead are chopped fish heads they make a crunchy starter.
Dessert is sugar and spice and all things nice, cupcake swirls with extra curls and all cooked up from little girls!
No meal of hers would be complete without a goblet or two of red and it’s even fruitier and tastier when taken from the dead!
Skeleton lamps light the way and beckon you travellers to come and stay.
But beware the Yorkshire Witchery and little signs of trickery or you may find yourself charmed by my little spell of bewitchery!
