It's probably not uncommon to paratee this famous work (I've done it myself.) But this isn't a bad thing when the new piece is good. With that in mind, your work certainly qualifies. Well done and best of luck in the contest.

This was quite entertaining and your rhyme scheme done without too much straining. I did experience a lot of regret that it ended so badly for the poor schmoo since the graphic image didn't really express menace. I was hoping maybe he'd be called upon to be best man.

    LOL - I thought of the same thing (sort of...) going with a Halloween Party turned into a wedding reception. . .but I just couldn't do it! (Let's face it. . .seeing skeletons become animated would scare the bejezuz out of most of us - LMAO)

This is very brilliant, I really enjoyed it. Halloweens answer to the night before Christmas, this must have taken awhile. I think this is a great contender for the Halloween poem contest, I wish you good luck.

This work has reached the exceptional level

Great take on the format and the narrative of the original poem. So yes I feel it,
that I have been warned in time for next year's Day of the Dead, as we say it
here around the borderline.

    LOL - Having skeletons become animated in your Dining Room would certainly validate the appellation "Day of the Dead", wouldn't it !?!?!

A fantastic write filled with great rhymes, flowing descriptions, brilliant use of language and it deserves a six which unfortunately I am out of! Such a fabulous read, love Dolly x

Hi there;
Thank you so much for sharing your poem of the dangers of Halloween night. Your entry in the contest is full of specters of boned folks and their dubious doings. Good luck in the contest,

~patty~
