"Snippet" -- a small piece or brief extract
KidLit is all about stories for eensie, weensie kids -- and PBs about eensie weensie stories -- and micro fiction about eensier weenier stories and Twitter contests often have the eensiest weensiest stories of all! Such is the case with Susannah Hill's Halloweensie contest -- a Halloween story for kids 12 and under in less than 100 words! AND it has to contain special words! This year's words: goodies, glow-in-the-dark, and goosebumps! All those g's inspired me to write an alliterative story. I hope you enjoy my eensie weensie story and have a Happy Halloweensie!
HALLOWEEN GALA (100 words)
Green and gold glimmers grow
from glow-in-the-dark gourds.
Guests with goosebumps gather --
Gaggles of giggly girls and gangly guys,
Gussied up in grisly or glittery garb.
Glamorous ghosts and garish ghouls
glide among games,
Vying for gallons of goodies.
Then. . .
Glimmering lights go out!!
The sudden dark hides thievery.
When the glow resumes,
Goodies have disappeared!
Gumshoes on the job!
Grunts and groans grow,
from Angel Gabriel and Gladys Gladiator,
grasping their bellies,
Gabriel and Gladys go.
Later. . .
Until next Halloween.
