All Hallow's Eve

All Hallow’s Eve

As he walked out the door he peered back inside
At his mother and father who gestured so feebly
Did he float down the steps, did he spookily glide
Did he feel Halloween’s deeds so deeply

Wipe the blood from his cape
Wipe the gore from his knife
Wipe the smile from their face
Wipe out the balance of each one’s life

Halloween eve a night to do evil deeds
Commit heinous acts for no one will know
For him to hide in shadows and weeds
To pounce on and slice them up so

To straggle behind and peer in bag of candy
Gives him opportunity to grab and to run
To carve lil’ goblins is just fine and dandy
Better for him a sharp knife than a gun

Mixing and mingling with ghostly immunity
Furtively fingering keen edge of the blade
Picking next victim with predatious impunity
Tonight a new legend will be bloodily made
David Whalen
