We got off to a fast start yesterday, which is great! Now, let's jump into Day 2. (Also, if you left any comments that needed moderated yesterday, they should now be approved.)

For today's prompt, write a visitor poem. The poem can be from the point of view of a visitor--or the people receiving the visitor. The visitor could be expected or unexpected. The visitor could be welcome or unwelcome. The visitor doesn't even have to be human.

Here's my attempt:

"Vile Villains of Villainy"

I balanced on the balcony
barely able to breathe for fear
of the freakish ghosts and goblins
gathering as a symphony
of ghastly and ghoulish groaning
gained momentum in the foyer--
the freaky, frightening foyer--
from whence I heard cackles and cat
calls clambering up stairways with
hideous hoots and howls of, "trick
or treat, smell my feet, give me--give
me, give me--something good to eat."
