Hell's Spawn Lawn 
























Halloween in Esmond Grove

It comes round every year

Cobwebs on the hedges

Surround a lawn of fear

Bony arms outstretching

From who knows what below

Skeletons emerging

To join the season's show

Skulls with mouths wide open

Set in ghastly grin

Inviting brave or foolish

To venture here within

Giant spiders over doorway

A knocker made of bone

Daring every passersby

To find just what is home

An awful cast of characters

Escaping Hellfire's burn

Until November comes around

And garden peace returns.
