Who will test their spirit on the night of Halloween?

Who will test their spirit on the night of Halloween?

Who will delve into the world of the macabre and the obscene?

Who will take a risk and head into the absurd?

Who would do such a thing without offering a word?


The ghosts and the goblins who haunt the night!

The skeletons and witches who offer fright!

Their power is unrequited

Their presence are unforeseen

But their spirits run rampant on the night of Halloween!


It’s a nightmare! for the young and the old

Terror walks the streets – a sight to behold

It’s a nightmare! for the people of the town

To see the dead and deranged wandering around


It’s All Hallows’ Eve!

The dead’s night to play!

Stay safe indoors!

In the darkness do not stray!


It’s a nightmare!

Unlike anything you’ve seen before!

Hold onto Nanny’s hand and be engulfed by the horror!


It’s a nightmare!

Unlike anything you’ve seen!

Filled with strange things from the frightening to the obscene


It’s a nightmare!

Lovely poem! You can really feel the excitement that you have about Halloween, also it has such a nice sing songy vibe as well. The rhymes were great too, fantastic job!

Mr Watson

You certainly created the spirit and the essence in this one Jeff. Now I must retire to my bed before the dawn breaks or i'll be having a steak for breakfast !
