Costume Shopping

Vampires don't check voicemail.
Werewolves never shave.
Zombies can't taste ice cream.
Witches sweep all day.

Superheros never get a day off.
Villains talk too much.
Divas spend half their time primping.
I think I'll just go butch.

Perfect.

And boy is this line true: "Witches sweep all day."

I love It! Took Sebastian costume shopping yesterday. Lotta vampires out there.

Much better than diva. Great rhyme MZ. K.

All that sweeping gets old, indeed!

I think finding anything is hard... but vampires can at least have some taste.

Wonderful trope-a-dope on identity and truth. Now I want the poem on butch. (OK, more of them.)

Each paring is so clever. I especially like Zombies can't taste ice cream.

Kim Russell said...

Inspired! I love that line about witches sweeping all day!

Rommy said...

It is the comfiest and likely the warmest option.

Going butch is better than going commando...right?

Fireblossom said...

Love the sweeping witches.

Sioux said...

The unshaven werewolves and the sweeping witches... Quite whimsical.

I think it isn't easy going butch. If I did the flip I'd be a witch, then cruise on my broom day and night, mostly night. I remember cruising girls back when, mostly in pairs. They had the life.
