Halloween Poetry: Voodoo
Seasonal poem for Hallowe'en. Silly and frivolous.
About the poem Voodoo
Halloween approaches and as usual I have my scarey, creepy, gothic horror halloween head on. Here's some fun with the dark side, not quite poetry I know, but a great verse for performance.
When someone left a comment elsewhere, "you do that voodoo that you do so well" I was quite flattered as it is some years since I was able to do that old Black Magic that makes attractive women throw themselves at me.
Voodoo - are you up for some
I do voodoo, you do voodoo,
Shamen in Peru do voodoo,
Dervishes in Timbuktu do voodoo,
Mystics in Kathmandu do voodoo -
but not as well as me and you do -
All the people who do voodoo
Should get together to do voodoo;
we could have a party in Waterloo
or a barbecue in Honolulu;
anywhere we're passing thru,
any place we can find a crew who
want to join in to do voodoo.
But most folks don't have a clue
what fun it is to do voodoo
so it could be just me and you
in which case we'll play Scrabble.
