Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

Happy Spooktacular Halloween everyone.

Don’t you just love this time of year, with the trees shedding colourful leaves, the days becoming cold enough to rock the winter wardrobe and there always being something fun to look forward to, kicking off with a day that celebrates witches and werewolves, ghosts and ghouls, spells and sorcery, potions and pumpkins. How wonderfully bizarre.

I will admit that when it comes to Halloween I am not too keen on the candy and costume part, that bit actually confuses me a little. Who decided that sending your kids round the neighbours to beg for sweets was okay? It seems a little weird and so I much prefer to concentrate on the tales behind Halloween and the fables of old that are so deliciously imaginative. They rank among the very best. 

One of the best-known Halloween poems (spells) has to be the Song of the Witches, from Macbeth by William Shakespeare, so today I thought just for fun I would bring you my very own unique take on this poem and create an all-powerful jobseekers spell just for you. You never know, if you believe in magic, it might just work.

Song of the Workers

Double, double, toil and trouble;
CV’s burn and coffees bubble.
Forget your woes and past mistakes,
For on this night you’ve moves to make;

Chant this spell to land a job,
Make your mark, get hours to log.
With ladders to climb and praises to sing,
With hands to help and service to bring.
You need a charm of powerful trouble,
So mix your work-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double, toil and trouble,
CV’s burn and coffees bubble.
Feel the song flow through your blood
Then pick your offer, for in they’ll flood.

Happy Halloween!
