I want candy.

Created: November 01,2020

A Halloween Prayer.

Thank you for leaving your light on the porch, so that I can know you are home,

ready to give me treats,

for I wander the streets alone,

my flash light does scare away the monsters,

lurking in the dark.


I only wanted a place for my candy to smile.


Thank you for all the chocolate, and sugar and sweets on my teeth,

my tongue cannot take it,

and I love all those delights.


Thank you for dressing up when you answered the door,

you were wearing a mask and I didn't even ignore.


Did I want to give you a trick,

or did you want to give me a treat?


Maybe you put the razor blades in,

with the cyanide,

for me to eat.


Thank you for all the scary things,

you've given to me,

I really can't wait to go home,

and have something sweet to eat.


Thank you,

and Happy

Fine, lol.
I think this is what I said. It wast written down, so I had to transcribe my rambling )))

You ears are fine, I just like talking only enough so it unable to be understood, yet a few words come through, open for interpretation; like a poem :D

I don't trust anybody, so lucky me for never having to worry about anything in the ballpark of this scenario.
You really are getting some mileage out of the audio feature, hm?
Not a complaint.

You keep doing you, Dr. Acula.

Candy from strangers )) What a crazy thing !

I wish more people would use and explore the audio feature. ( I honestly do not like being the only one; where is my inspiration? lol )

Greatly appreciate the comment, Simon.
Thank you.

Concerning that one paragraph that gave you rise )))

I remember being a little one, not so long ago lol.
It was a great night, to go and collect candy, being driven around, then dropped off, while my folks followed slowly in the car, as I went house to house, with my brother, collecting a pillow case of treats ( the best candy bag btw, because it takes a ton of candy to fill that thing lol ).

And, when we got back home, after our parents finally said : "Thats enough of this." - I would scatter all the collected treats across the kitchen table, for a very close inspection, making sure it was safe enough to eat. There was always that fear of not knowing what some strangers gave us; even though we stuck to houses in our hometown, where everyone knew one another, there was always a few people, that no one knew anything anything about.

Short story, long, check the candy after you get it )))

Halloween is a great memory for all of the child in us the got dressed up; and, went trick or treating.

Thanks for the comment, Joy :)

Drum and Bass rhythm went perfectly with this, Doc! Always seemed a bit of an odd thing to me, going door-to-door looking for candy!

It is such an exciting time, to become someone/something else, even for just a day. What a Holiday !?!

I think Halloween has gone on for so long now, that it is embedded in our zeitgeist, and our daily life might not have such a release, were it not for for such a Holiday.

This is one of fav drums and bass ditties ))

Thank you, Hully .

I don't know why but I found this super creepy; i think I may have to write a short story on my interpretation of this lol! :D

Sat, October 13th, 2018 12:22pm


Thats awesome ))

It actually has little bit of deeper story to it, I mean when have I ever written anything that didn't also mean something more, something else ? )))

Thanks, starburst !
