Evil Doings

“She’s toxic!” Mike exclaimed, twisting the button on his sweater nervously.

“Not to me.” Joe replied dreamily and conversely.

Cold air started to sweep in with heavy gloom

Mike gathered his coat when evil began to loom

A shiver shook Joe when she entered the room

But he smiled, looking forward to the evidence of doom

Mike took hold of Joe and tried to push him away

It was too late, the spell already took him astray

Mike often thinks fondly of his best friend Joe

Won’t forget when she took him—covered in evil glow
