Scary Treats - Halloween Poem


The Moon is full and ominous
Conspiring spectrums in the mist
With terrors mortals should not know
Catastrophes within the soul

Tarantulas the size of hounds
Creep and crawl on window silhouettes
Their hairy bodies cling to pangs
Waiting to eat you with their fangs

Green Witches read their almanacs
Enchanting riddled vulgar tongues
Cauldrons boil evil potions
Frogs and crows with one eye sockets

A piper hymens a devils tune
Inside the shadows of the woods
Where pyres burn of pagan rites
Draw rings around the whicker man

In the forest the fairies meet
Whispering their dark treaties
Too ensnare the little children
And keep them forever yearning

The Goblin King goes 'trick or treat'
As spring healed Jack jumps on his feat
Leaping and bound across the land
Biding to his masters command

Skeleton Ed says 'Hello my friend
And bows for courtesy with his hand
'We'll dance the dead eternal waltz
Embracing the darkness in our hearts'


So have a happy Halloween my friends
May you find the trick to scary treat

And pays us but with earth and dust;
