All month, I'd been stalking my neighbors' front yard,
eager to see what they might install as
their Halloween yard decor.
All month I was disappointed because no magic
transformations had appeared.
Well, a new deck had been added to the back
of the house, so I figured their attentions
had been applied there instead.
This morning I left to walk to the store to find
that this scene had been created.
I wish I could have seen it last night,
lit in all its macabre glory.
In addition to the skeleton driving the old car,
there is a skeleton cat on the window,
a giant-ass spider perched on the corner of the porch,
and, just possibly, a yucky effigy of our
state's narrow-minded governor being squished
under the car. Bwa-ha-ha-hah!
On the other side of the front yard, they had parked
one of their cars. Since it is just the right
shade of "Exorcist" green, it fit the theme.
I wondered what role it played Halloween night
and was sorry I missed whatever
drama it had been assigned.
