Default "you've been spooked" poems?

I can't find my copy of this poem. This is where someone anonymously puts Halloween treats on doors in the neighborhood, and the bag or container includes the poem --which invites the spookee to spook someone else (boy I need coffee, did i really just write that??) and a "We've been spooked!" card to post on the door so anyone else "spooking" knows this house has already been visited. Does anyone have a copy? TIA!!

The Phantom haunts you happily
From now till Halloween.
And was delivered by a friend,
Who (hopefully) was not seen!
The spirit of Halloween has come to wish you well.
Someone, somewhere selected you to receive this happy spell!
You must display the phantom on your door so all can spy,
That this happy little guy already haunts you.
Now fix 3 sacks of goodies like the one given to you,
Then ring someone's doorbell, leave a bag and make them happy too!!!!!!

We love doing this!!



The air is cool, the season fall,
Soon Halloween will come to all ghosts and goblins,
spooks galoreTricky witches at your door.
The spooks are after things to do,
In fact a spook brought this to you !!!
The treats that came with this short note, Are yours to keep ,enjoy them both .
The excitement comes when friends like you ,
Will copy it & make it two,We'll all have smiles upon our faces,
No one will know who "BOO"ed whoses places !!
Just two short days to work your spell,
Keep it secret ,hide it well.
Please join the fun, the seasons here .
Just spread these "BOO's" & Halloween cheer .

Include a sheet of paper that says:

You have been BOOED! Please keep it going by following these directions:

Enjoy your treat
Place the BOO sign on your front door or visible in a window
Within 2 days, make 2 copies of this note, make 2 treats & 2 BOO signs
Secretly deliver to 2 neighbors/friends without a BOO .
Keep an eye on nearby front doors to see how far and fast it spreads by Halloween.

Thanks for your post. I lost mine also! I enjoyed seeing the different versions of the poem. I found this link, which also has a printable sign.

Not a "spooked" poem, but Kimstamps.com has a bunch of the "poop" poems...one for every holiday it seems! Click on the link on the side of her opening page.

Here is a site that has the poem and a ghost on a single sheet of paper.

www.beenbooed.com



Makes it easy for the people you boo because the poem has the web site so they can just print it off again.

Oh, the poem at beenbooed.com is really cute. We got booed last weekend. Our poem was different, but still cute.

People usually start the 1st of October and it goes until Halloween. I live in a neighborhood of about 30 houses and at least half of them have a ghost on their door now it seems.

This is a really fun tradition, although I'm saddened to see it being commercialized. I was at the card aisle in the store and they were selling "been booed" bags with ghosts and spiders and such! Where's the fun in that???
