A bell rings on a door- an old lady opens it to a bunch of naughty, mischevious children.

" Give us a sweet or we'll tear of your head,

Rip out your limbs and cut out your heart,

We'll boil you and slice you,

We'll cook you alive,

We'll roast you or toast you,

Which ever you like."

The chant stops and the children smirk- the woman hands over a large bucket of sweets.

"Happy halloween!"

The children reply sweetly with innocent smiles.
