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.

at times ..
even intelligent guys would love to enjoy silliness..
it makes them feel ..
like also being human
..small talks before the UN counsels we speak then of writers diction unknowingly then the applause ..
wish the composer stood up
