Hello Jack Lantern, It’s your time once more,
For witches and monsters, and pile on the gore.

For costume and make- up, we’ve waited all year,
Both the kid and the adult, this night-time for fear.

Door knocking commences, not long after dark,
More tricking than treating, if you don’t play your part.
 
Houses and yards, Halloween decor,
Tombs stones in garden, Bones hang from the door.
 
Pumpkins are carved, with faces so mean,
Scrape out the brains, and light up the scene.
 
Skulls and black bats, and brooms for the riding,
Big hairy spiders, creep out from their hiding.
 
Devils on horse back, and Texas rockets,
Chocolate eye balls, in marshmallow sockets.
 
Face painted ghouls, ghost bed sheet so white,
Fake severed finger, and Dracula’s bite.
 
With baskets and pockets, stuffed with candy galore,
They head home with the treasures, to see who has more.
 
The witching hour ends, as midnight draws close,
Dim lights & lock doors, it’s dream time for most.
 
More often it’s nightmares, drift into your head,
The shape at the window, something under the bed.
 
The sharp morning light, brings a sigh of relief,
A pain in the neck, left by two teeth!
