Flies in the Ointment

Someone birthed a solemn holy day

Put it aside a darkened holiday

Where Saints became the sorcerers

And Angels stooped to devil’s play

Holy Grail holds witches brew

Belief in superstitions grew

Antithesis of all that’s grand

Now just creaking floors atop sinking sand


dVersepoetspub.com prompt is a quadrille using the word creak. Reading the origin of halloween, it was a pagan celtic festival of honoring the dead. Christians then created All Saints Day Nov 1 in a pursuit to convert pagans.

I personally don’t celebrate halloween, but I do eat the candy, drink the cider and  enjoy the harvest decorations of the season.

    I don’t celebrate Halloween either. There aren’t even many children who trick or treat in the area anymore. I figure ghosts aren’t going to wait for this time of the year anyway.
