A Halloween Contest

All the evils gathered once
In a Halloween Contest
To decide who was the darkest
The scariest and the best

A monster claimed he had eaten
Seven children at one go
A bat bragged he’s a nightmare
To five hundred girls and more

A vampire had found a potion
That turned the sun away
A zombie was too dumb
To have anything good to say

Then finally came my turn
To say what I had done
I claimed to have done nothing
Except borne a special son

I exclaimed it out loud —
2020 is my son’s name
I heard other contestants gasping
The judges did the same

Needless to say I won
Brought home the coveted prize
No one dares come close to me
Or look me in the eyes
