It Was A Dark And Stormy Night
It was a dark and stormy night
the Rickenburger house was full of laughter, excitement, and fright
for it was Halloween night
and the kids were all in a craze trying to get their costumes on just right.
little Benny was putting on his darth maul costume
while older Cori told him about his awaiting doom
Benny had never gone before
and figured it would pretty much be a big snore
Cori knew better and was trying to tell him about all the fun
Benny just couldn't wait untill it was all said and done
they began to walk up the streets
stopping at doors for some very sweet treats
Benny started to realize it wasn't as bad as he had thought
as he began to notice all of the candy he had got
a grin began to spread over his face
and he quickly sped up his pace
when they knocked on the next door
they had no idea what it had in store
it opened very slowly with a loud creak
the look of the guy made Cori let out a squeak
he was big and tall
and had no tan at all
they were both completely terrified
but still followed when he said "come inside"
Cori now said "this must not be real"
but inside a chill of terror she could feel
Benny looked just as frightened
his skin was drastically lightened
they continued to walk through
while the cold, howling wind blew
they got to a pitch black room and stopped
suddenly they heard the loud sound of a balloon being popped
and the light burst on so suddenly
they couldn't believe what they could see
all their friends and family jumped out and screamed "surprise1"
Cori and Benny couldn't believe their eyes
once the party was done
Benny had to admit, "Halloween is a whole lot of fun!"
