Minifigure Monday – Once Upon a Halloween

Once Upon a Halloween
(An original LEGO inspired poem from True North Bricks)

There is a tale which I know,
That took place a long time ago.
Three sisters met a fate obscene,
Once upon a Halloween.

Living far out of the town,
They gained great repute and renown.
Three healers in the forest green,
Once upon a Halloween.

There came a man to their door,
Where many stood for help before.
He sought a cure of root and bean,
Once upon a Halloween.

To the sisters he did plead,
His daughter was sick and in need.
Upon death’s door at just sixteen,
Once upon a Halloween.

To the town the sisters flew,
But, there was nothing they could do.
Perhaps if sooner had they been,
Once upon a Halloween.

Since his daughter did not live,
The sisters he could not forgive.
A fate he a planned, most cruel and mean,
Once upon a Halloween.

Town folk rallied to his cause,
Three sisters captured without pause.
Accused of witchcraft most unclean,
Once upon a Halloween.

Bound atop a wooden spire,
Condemned to burn within a fire.
The spell they cast was unforeseen,
Once upon a Halloween.

It’s said the fire did not kill,
The sisters haunt the forest still.
Each year a child from town they glean,
Once upon a Halloween.

This poem was inspired by the LEGO Dimensions Wicked Witch of the West, Willa the Witch from 1997’s Fright Knights, and the Wacky Witch from Minifigures Series 14.
