The Haunting Of The Old Lighthouse

 

Is it a ghost or just the caretaker
that lurks in the corner and jumps out to scareya?
From the ole shut down lighthouse on Albany Bay
Where the kids and their pet mutt are well on their way

 From the ole shut down lighthouse the Mystery Machine
Which Fred, Velma, Scooby and Shaggy have seen
In a darkened old building way off of the grid
Seeking the treasure that ole Bluebeard hid

Though he tries hard to chase them they manage to stop
All the plans and the traps and the haunting he's got
And he would have got away with his desperate bids
If it hadn't been for them darn pesky kids

it was best before they brought in Scrappy Doo - even the first film acknowledged that no one liked Scrappy

...your concept for the prompt is particularly good... you caught me off guard a bit at the beginning & loved the insertions of the scoobydoo gang... ha... smiles...

I love your poem (nice to see a poem from you). It was light and spirited and perfect for the painting. I came by to say how horrified I am by the news from London, and to pay my respects to you and your city. Have you realized how your first sentence is like a foretelling of sorts?
Sending soothing thoughts your way, Pixie. xo
