The moon so full, lit the night
Cries from the raven kept from sight.
Mysterious beings walked in twos
Faces of the Macabre were their muse.
Ghosts, goblins witches and more
Creeping from sidewalk to sidewalk and door to door.
Trick or treat! Simultaneously they screamed,
As their torch cast shadows from the single beam.
Then, the screech of laughter came through loud and clear
And no one noticed as I wandered near;
The little fools for if only they knew
What this night really holds true.
The gates open and dimensions collide
And the ghastly ones look for places to hide.
We dont want your house or grassy knoll
What we are here for is the better part of your soul,
So laugh it up and eat your treats
But on this hallows eve be careful of who you meet.
