Flying Pigsfeet

by HH

Ann had cooked the pigsfeet, Cat and Alice brought the steaks
Clare arrived with vegees and Sarah's tasty cakes
Family members talked and laughed before we took our seat
The house was filled with smells of food, I couldn't wait to eat

It was a lavish dinner on the eve of Halloween
The table was bedecked with food, what a scrumptious scene
We all sat down and bowed our heads while Greg, he said the grace
Then everyone began to eat at a wondrous, tasty pace

The steak was tender, the vegees right, can't wait for cake and pie
Poured hotsauce on my pigsfeet when something caught my eye
All plates began to tremble, the food commenced to fling
Shocked I was by an eerie sight, the pigsfeet sprouted wings

They hovered over table, the guests were wide-eyed shocked
Pigsfeet began to chase us like an evil was unlocked
One divebombed and landed on top of Cat's combed hair
She dropped her purse and started cursing "Get the hell out there"

Another raced cross the room colliding on Ray's thigh
The one I saw came straight at me and barely missed my eye
The dinner was delicious but no longer was it fun
The guests had bolted from their chairs and now were on the run

No sooner had they started, then silence made them STOP !
They peered around the corner and the pigsfeet All had dropped !
What made them fly's a question, the answer not routine
But we think Twilight Zone had landed here on Halloween !
Well that was last night's dinner, but our fears continue on
'Cause we have breakfast invites and "my" stomach's not too strong

Pigsfeet with wings I'll not forget, thank God they don't have legs
Here comes the morning breakfast.Oh Oh! Watch those ham and eggs!
