The Witch's Butler
By JEN Garrett
Poor witch's butler is
never invited to the Witches Halloween Ball
But 2020 is his year, because...
masks are required.
He creeps past his sleeping boss,
grabs the spare broom...
“Mr. Witch, what big dark eyes you have,”
The better to seek out ingredients
“What thin hands you have,”
The better to cast this spell!
Fake Mr. Witch dances on bony feet.
“You're not a witch!” the others screech.
Skeleton is unmasked.
But wait! He flew on a broom,
brewed and spelled as good as anyone.
Who says a bony man can't be a witch?
