The Good Witch

Searching on this frenzied night,

my legs wrapped ‘round the broomstick tight,

I hollered as a ghost flew by,

“Is there a powder room nearby?”

Three caspers passed without assistance.

Then a sprite came from the distance.

Pointing to a shopping mall,

she reassured, “For nature’s call.”

While cobwebs, potions, tricks, and treats

charmed costumed revelers in the streets,

my urgent needs just couldn’t wait.

But I returned to thank my mate.

“I’m in your debt. What is your name?

You kept me from All Hallows’ shame.

You… POOF! appeared when I was nervous.”

“Robyn Campbell. At your service.”
