Haiku Friday: Truly scary things!

Halloween is coming-- our scariest holiday! So much of the stuff around Halloween, though-- candy, pumpkins, and Ken Bone-- aren't really very scary. 

So let's haiku this week about things that are really scary. You can use your imagination!

Here, I will go first:

Martin Van Buren:
I try not to judge hairstyles,
But OMG yow!

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable recipe, and have some fun.

Left lane slowpokers
Traffic stacks up, tensions mount
They hum Sinatra.
Chateau Avenue
Ghost lived in hall by kitchen
Creak, Slam! Goes the door.

Ghost rule: don't scare kids
But when little ones away...
Watch out! Here she comes!
Bizarre orange cat,
Not Garfield, not Hobbs, not Bill,
Yikes! It's the Donald!
Autotune, Techno
Electronic drone music
Disco Sucks. Always.
Picture on the wall.
Why, that’s my mother! Oh no,
wait, it’s a MIRROR.

(Sadly, a true story. Happened in a hotel lobby about 4 years ago.)

Surly Roseville deer
Eye the people in the park
Is it a bloodthirst?

After a story in the Strib that deer in a park in Roseville are beginning to stand their ground. There is probably a conceal and carry haiku in there somewhere, too.
My Mom bought it
Painting resembles "The Scream"
reminds her of me
Five things my wife fears:
Spiders, noises unexplained,
Night, death, the unknown
