One All-Hallow's-Eve so dreary, I did homework, bored and weary,
Over many a heavy volume of biology and lore
While I studied, still and sleepy, I felt a presence, close and creepy
As if someone had come to greet me, greet me sitting at my chore
"'Tis just a dream," I muttered, "So sleepy and about to snore –  
Only this and nothing more."

But a devil-beast appearing in my work soon interfering,
Straight it wheeled my desk chair in front of laptop and Explorer
Then upon the cushion sinking, Fe'la betook himself to linking
Webpage unto webpage, winking as he led me to procrastination's door –
Will this fiend so costumed leave me study anymore?
Quoth the Fella, "Nevermore."

That Demon Fella, never jaunting, still is haunting, still is haunting,
On the closed lid of the laptop that is sitting on my floor;
And his eyes they are compelling me to never sleep, impelling
And my desk-light o'er him felling, as I browse through dA's store
And my soul from out that website that is open on Explorer
Shall be lifted – nevermore!
My entry for Fella's Halloween Contest. :icontardboogieplz:

This is a parody of Edgar Allan Poe's poem, "The Raven," one of the absolute classic creepy pieces of literature. I parodied the first and last stanzas and stanza twelve in the middle. Make sure to read the whole thing here! [link]

Basically, my thought was to do something lighthearted with a definate creepy tone to it, so I combined Poe's eerie meter and rhyme with the somewhat comic image of Fella dressed up in a devil costume coming to haunt me on Halloween night and make me become addicted to dA. Lol, and yes I am addicted, 'cause if you ever notice my online status it usually is "Online" or "Online (Idling)." ;)

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy!
