Halloweenies 3


Nancy was the haunted kind.
She had a strangely tortured mind.
She dwelled in cancer, AIDS, Ebola;
The ill effects of Coca-Cola;
The horrors on her TV screen;
The future cost of gasoline;
The conflicts on the global stage;
The weakness sure to come with age.
At length her mind was so obsessed,
She couldn’t get a moment’s rest.
And so she had her head removed
And now her life is much improved.

    But her dating life is now amiss.
    Where to plant that goodnight kiss?
