My Creepy Costume
I have a creepy costume planned
this year for Halloween.
It’s sure to be the scariest,
most shocking that you’ve seen.
I won’t dress up as Dracula.
I won’t be Frankenstein.
I won’t look like a werewolf
to send shivers down your spine.
I’ve figured out the one thing
that can frighten you the most.
And, no, it’s not a skeleton,
a zombie, or a ghost.
And what could be more horrible
than all of these, you ask?
Well, this year I’ll scare everyone
by taking OFF my mask.
