Beware when you venture out
You must keep this to yourself - tell no one!
Those words haunted my thoughts and dreams
Little did I know what was in store
The laughs, the tears, the freakish screams

The clues were all there, for us to see
A broken doorbell greeted our way
Crazy wind chimes bade us welcome
We decided to enter; come what may

On a weathered table in the foyer
A blank envelope was there
Held down by a ceramic feather
The scrawling note said "Beware!"

I wouldn't have gone along, if I had only known
The wind around us began swirling
I believed it a prank, but with muffled laughter
The claws of the beast came curling

We had no chance, no time to run
I don't know how I got away
But my friends were not so lucky
On this Halloween night's fray
