Headless Horseman

    Newer Older

    When the spooks have a midnight Jamboree
    They break it up with fiendish glee
    Ghosts are bad, but the one that's cursed
    It's the Headless Horseman, he's the worst

    That's right, he's a fright, on Halloween night

    But when he goes a-joggin' 'cross the land
    Holdin' his noggin in his hand
    Demons take one look and groan
    And hit the road for parts unknown

    Beware, take care, he rides alone

    And there's no spook, like a spook who's scorned
    They don't like him, and he's really burned
    He swears to the longest day he's dead
    He'll show them that he can get a head

    They say he's tired of his flamin' top
    He's got a yen to make a swap
    So he rides one night each year
    To find a head in the hollow here

    Now he likes them little, he likes them big
    Part in the middle, or a wig
    Blond.. grey or even red
    The Headless Horseman needs a head

    With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop
    He's out lookin' for a top to chop
    So don't stop to figure out a plan
    You can't reason with a headless man

    Now if you doubt this tale is so
    I met that spook just a year ago
    No, I didn't stop for a second look
    For once you cross that bridge, my brook friends

    The ghost is through, his power ends

    So when you're riding home tonight
    Make for the bridge with all your might
    He'll be down in the hollow there
    He needs your head, look out, beware

    With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop
    He's out looking for a head to swap
    So don't try to figure out a plan
    You can't reason with a headless man......{{{{.BaHaaaaBaha}}}}!!!!!!

      To much fun happening here. (Psst, I think some men are headless, o.k. maybe just brainless) Sorry guys, if the head fits, wear it.
      Your giving Doc a lot to work with here. Can you read between the lines.
      But for today...this poem is perfect and so is your vision of your man. Great treatment for sure and very spooky.
