Happy Hallow’s Eve
Halloween is upon us; what a fun time,
With cotton candy, sweets, dress-ups, and adventure,
It is a night for horror writers to bring forth grizzly crimes,
Where truth is misconstrued, nothing is candor.
Ghastly ghouls chase away the pumpkin wearing kids,
Where ‘cereal’ killers meet their match with Jason Vorhees,
Celebrators wander the streets, watch out there is a giant squid,
Door knockers begging for a little sweet, a juicy Lollie.
The tradition has changed so much in my lifetime,
From a country hell-bent on not following the Americans,
To a new journey where some houses show the horror signs,
Still, though the thought of knocking on strangers’ doors, I am not a fan.
Those who wish to participate in the fun,
I wish you all the fun and sweets people will leave,
To those who enjoy the history behind the sweets and gum,
I wish you a Happy hallows eve.
