Halloween Exploits: Random Twitter Poem for Oct 22nd

This fun poem Halloween Exploits is about trick or treating pure and simple and is similar to one I wrote last year around this time from random words.  This poem included 19 random words (in bold) submitted by the following Twitter players:
@sdhuab (extravagant), @wwm_shakespeare (uncropped), @goodyniosi (spurious), @caterpillarjive (cassandra), @wippy_ (zombies), @jmbuckingham (Nip), @erenmckay (boo), @blogneta (halloween), @spikeyloki (Winner, Picked), @solomonobaje (Shindig), @jcvara (Exploits), @mikezilla14 (stark), @originalbadbele (elided), @eccentrie (aspirations), @ken_yub13 (spleen), @nayeli4nelly4 (final), @liliumhigh (gigantic), @bovelett (spelling)

Definitions:

Cassandra - a person who prophesies doom or disaster.

Halloween Exploits

Cassandra ghosts with an elided boo
spelling witches with smoking brew
Move from one shindig; then on to you

Stark extravagant aspirations
fed by full moon incantations
and gigantic sugary libations

As any winner could predict
each final candy prize licked
by pint sized zombies picked

To eat a spurious jellybean
not nip a real human spleen
uncropped exploits this Halloween

    Hilarious! Your poem made me think of missing those trick-or-treats and candy corns for Halloween. I’m away at college and all we’ve got at the dorm are faux spider webs and lady bunnies.
