Be Very Afraid


Come on you ghouls and ghosties
I’m waiting for you to come
Halloween night and I’m all grown up-
Do you think you can scare me some?

Now that I’m big and fearless
I never cover my eyes in bed
In fact I might even scare you now-
If you weren’t already dead?

Anything you want to try is fine
But just don’t make a mess
That’s all I’m really scared of nowdays-
My old joints getting stiffer I guess?

Oh, is that why you make that gruesome face
I thought it was just for effect
Auld Lang Syne can be damned to hell-
Now that we’re all become train wrecks.

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
