Tell The Story Challenge

I’ve been nominated by John at The Eclectic Contrarian for this challenge. He wants a scary story but I just can’t. But I did see this creepy thing in the pictures given to me and I immediately thought of the yucky demons that prowl. So here’s my say-so on Halloween…

The Lizard Man from the swamps of sunny South Carolina! It’n he cute?? He’s real ya know….

—John the Eclectic Contrarian


Ghosts, goblins, glowing pumpkins shine bright

Spiders, skeletons, things that go bump in the night

One night you are given your reign

One night the masses go insane

Marching patio to doorstep bag in hand

Parents prodding, “Go get candy from the stranger’s hand.”

What do you tell a child as his candy shows up on the screen?

“We xray, honey because there are people so mean.”

Sweet little child dressed with white wings

But what about when they dress like these things?

Who gets the glory then?

We all know his name, Satan.

What if October 31 became a day all go to church?

Answers found, souls could call off their search

Instead of yelling Trick or Treat…

They could sing a new song to him who sits on heaven’s mercy seat!

My nominees:


Seeking Devine perspective

Jeff Rabb!!

Or anyone else who would like to join in

Here are the images I chose from the internet for my nominees. But if you want to use John’s images go right on ahead, you can find them here.

This gets the creative cells going and is just fun. What do you think the man on the train is saying to that woman long ago?? Hmm🤔

Nominate me again if you choose. It’s a pleasure to participate!

  1. Amy this just reminded me that I failed to go back and add you to my list of nominees. I thought about you after I had posted. I had racked my brain trying to think of who could do a story like this. And then I thought of you. And it’s amazing but I knew you would make the perfect poem just like this!….But I got distracted and forgot to go back and add ya! Sorry my friend! 🤦‍♀️ Old age must be creeping in or either this sickness I’ve had for 2 weeks…Anyways, you did an awesome awesome job girl! 👏🏼 👏🏼

    1. No problem. I started it all in the first place, because I gave John a new challenge idea and told him how much I enjoyed the tell the story challenge. It’s my favorite to do.
      First time he put that out last year I jumped in on it without being nominated. I’ve been known to do that a few times now.
