Glitch

The computer glitch
An upgrade of sorts
Turned me from a fierce Viking
To a kitty cat
Nothing tho do with the nasty witch
I'm sure I'll find my way back
Eventually.

Sorry, nicely written but you did not follow the guidelines where it says that the witch turned you into.....an animal.

I tougth you might go that way.  Yes, humans are animals in a way, certainly. But that was not the intent of the competition....if you took care to read clearly.  Try again, why not?

Of Mice and Me

 
There I was, at the costume party
Enjoying my time when I stepped on a witch’s toes
In my defense I was pretty drunk
But she was ugly AF with a big old wart on her nose

“My bad you mean looking bitch”
I meant to say “witch” but the liquor had taken full effect
All she did was give me a foul scowl
But I know my behavior that night had gone unchecked

Next thing I know I’m hankering for some cheese
I’m usually not much into it but it was a bad craving
Suddenly I felt like my entire body was shrinking
I thought it was because I was just misbehaving

I felt like I fell on the floor looking up at people
That’s when I girl looked at me and started screaming
Then another girl who was dancing shrieked and yelled
Then more girls joined and I thought they were scheming

While I was on the floor a guy tried to stomp me
So I scurried out of the way as fast as I could
But then something didn’t seem quite right to me
I felt scared but I decided to assert my manhood

I tuned around and tried to yell at the man chasing me
But my words came out like a teeny tiny squeak
I panicked and started to scream at the top of my lungs
But I had completely lost my voice and couldn’t speak

Then I saw another person coming at me with a broom
I scampered out of there with amazing agility and speed
I was amazed I was running on both my hands and feet
When I realized I had changed into a different of breed

I was covered in fur with big ears and some giant front teeth
Large whiskers? What the hell is happening in this house?
Then I saw my hand and feet hand turn into tiny paws
Oh no, this witch had done turned me into a mouse!

Then I saw the witch on the other side of the room
Laughing at me like it was the funniest thing
Suddenly I got hit in the back of the head with a broom
And like a hockey puck I flew through the air with one swing

Now all the women at the party are squealing loudly
Even the guys are on top of chairs calling me a rat
“I’m a mouse” I tried to explain but again I only screeched
That’s when the witch told someone “Release the cat”

“Aw hell nah” I squeaked and tried running toward the exit
But by then someone had let the ferocious kitty out
As for me, that was the first I’d been scared of a pussy
Because I know that cat was going to eat me without a doubt

He blocked my exit, I swerved to the left I veered to the right
But that cat was in the zone and he was fully focused on me
I faked to left but shifted to the right and still that didn’t work
So I had one last play and I knew it was going to be a little crazy

I hurried and scurried toward the witch and ran up her dress
Amidst the hairy legs and other things I really won’t mention
The cat ran up behind me and then the witch gave a scream
Feeling paws and claws all over was sure to get her attention

When I reached the nether…bushes of her southlands
The cat and I started to get a little delirious from the smell
But nevertheless, I persisted and climbed higher and higher
Until the kitty clawed and the witch released me from the spell

There I was in human form, on top of the witch, butt naked
They all thought it was magic trick, what more could they ask for
So that night I ran home as I fast I could, forever and ever sober
And it’s also why I don’t go to Halloween parties anymore

The End
