Now, here's an award winning poem written by [Mortified Penguin
] back in 2009 for the Halloween Poetry Contest on Elftown.
The Elftown Ball
'Twas the night of Halloween and all through the town,
Men wore their tuxes and women donned their gowns.
In the effulgent moonlight they would dance, one and all,
For at last, it was the night of the masquerade ball.
Organizing the festival was, indeed, quite a task,
But it was all worth it, when they each held their mask.
It was a time to be carefree, a time to have fun,
They could finally let loose, the party had just begun.
Midway through the night, once Hedda was quite drunk,
Mortified Penguin drove his car through the wall with a "clunk"!
"Waz goin' own?!" he proclaimed with a shout,
"You ran over Hedda!" they replied, "You knocked him clean out!"
The penguin chuckled real loudly and ate an hors d'œuvre,
"What's wrong with that guy?!" "He's got some nerve!"
He paid them no mind and kept on eating,
"Call a doctor!" they shouted, "Hedda is bleeding!"
"Don't worry, you guys! He's just an old lecher!"
Mort only got glares as Hedda left in a stretcher.
An hour, some cake, and sixteen martinis later,
Mort started wrestling with an enraged alligator.
The guards and townspeople all gathered 'round,
"We think you'd better leave. Get out of Elftown!"
"I didn't want to be here anyway!" he boisterously exclaimed
He went on to say, "I hope you all get maimed!"
As he drove away in his car, he said, with a shout,
"Eat at Bob's Diner! Peace! I'm out!"
