Halloween


If you say Hallowee-en is evil your lying
From the day we're born aren't we all dying

If that 24 hours is of Devil's spawn
And all those figures there on the lawn

Are waiting to kill, dismember and maim
Plastic and wood would share in the blame

When Sally put strychnine in the pumpkin pie
Which helped Bob to finally lay down and die

It happened one day but not Halloween
T'was Christmas you see now see what I mean

The 24 hours that come in a day
Are not made of evil however you pray

The seconds keep ticking time passes by
Halloween evil, a big dirty lie

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
