The Witch at No 45

It’s best to stay home when the sun goes down
To not venture out and roam around
Not to risk the breathy embrace
As old Nelly Dean haunts still haunts her place
The house many think of a sweet home-from-home
But back in the day before you were born
Nelly practiced the art of witchcraft and necromancy
And cursed all those that took her fancy
Potions and vials still stock the shelves
Of the basement where if stones could tell
They would recall the horrors committed down there
To any too stupid a take the dare
On All Hallows Eve to play Trick or Treat
Eager for nice things collect or to eat
But once inside they would not survive
Because no one has ever made it out alive
