Ok, so a skeleton is not a scarecrow, as mentioned in the little ditty below, but it’s as close as you’re going to get from me on this ghoul-infested date!

The Spook [1920]

The most horrible sight I ever saw
Was the soul of a scare-crow, gaunt and queer,
Made of Humor, the Shadow of straw
And a foolish notion of Fear.
by  James Francis Carlin MacDonnell (1881-1944)

From: Carlin, Francis, The Cairn of Stars, 1920, Henry Holt and Company: New York, p. 96.

May all your frights be little ones!

Take care and keep laughing!
