Halloween

Who hollowed out the pumpkin and carved a silly face
Who scooped out all the seeds and left a glimmer in its place
The japes of Halloween are bravado cloaking fear
There's not much levity, for tonight's the reckoning of the year

All through the light of summer we strove to fill the store
Now as the dusk 's upon us there's no chance to get some more
This ancient point of crisis is the end of the peasant's work
As the Celts full well knew, the rest is down to luck
