On All Hallows Eve
Witches ride the sky on broomsticks,
Werewolves and vampires,
Goblins, ghosts, and ghouls seek out,
Human beings to torment.

Terrible beaked mouths
On creatures that love the dark;
Massive misshaped heads
Foul, reeking, putrefied flesh,
On wriggling monstrosities.

A deadly omen
Hovering just overhead,
A portent of death
Lurking just out of vision,
Just out of sight of its prey.

Dire visions calling
Psychedelic terror dreams,
Descent into madness:
Bat-winged fiends with lethal fangs,
And talons, visit your room.

On Hallowe'en night
Living souls shudder, hiding;
midnight ride
Sees many people fall dead:
A sickle-wielding fiend strikes.
