The Sanderson Sisters

A Poem Inspired by Hocus Pocus

Winnie, Mary, and Sarah 

The Sanderson sisters three

How they love to scare ya

Each and every Halloween since good ole ‘93

Oh what we wouldn’t give

For someone to light the Black Flame candle

To break up this monotony in which we now live

Sometimes quarantine is just too boring to handle 

Maybe Winnie will grace us all with a song

Or Mary will entertain us with her crazy eyes

Or even better Sarah will throw a party and invite us to come along

Before all three of them die (again)
