A Quick Witch Trip


“What wond’rous thing, this shopping cart,”
Grismelda said, to Shadow cat.
The cat looked bored; he licked a paw.
A cart, wond’rous? He’d pick a rat.

“Eek!” Gris screeched. Shadow looked up.
“What are these monstrous gold things?”
“You mean the corn?” A worker asked.
He hated Hallowe’ens.

Curious now, she tried a taste
Of yellowed, husk-wrapped coblet.
“Ugh!” She spat. Her cat hissed back.
“These corns taste worse than carpet!”

“You’ll have to buy that now, you know,”
The worried worker noted.
Gris sneered, but dropped it in her cart,
“We’ll make it candied corn,” she voted.

A second (and last) entry for The 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest.

    Love Grismelda shopping with her cat. My favorite line: “You’ll have to buy that, now, you know.” Hilarious! Good luck in the contest!

    Good job of weaving in those three words. And yes, we should all shop with a cat along.

      Thanks. Bit of a labored effort to squeeze those in.
      Perhaps a cat would keep me from impulse buys.

    Fun story and clever rhyming, Chelsea! Love that Gris goes shopping with her cat! Love that she apparently has experience with the taste of carpet 🙂 Great ending line! Thanks for another fun entry!
