Halloween


There's a chill in the air when the sun sets down
to rest his head this night.
From the west comes the sound of a thousand souls
bringing with them ghoulish delight.

Over there, what's that!
Why it's only the cat,
named Oliver, he's black you see.

If he crosses your path,
you should probably retract
your paces and run home to be

safe in the arms
of your home without harm
from the beasties that bump 'cross the land.

For on Halloween night,
under full moon's light,
all souls once more take a stand.

Happy haunting!
