Trick Or Treat - Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning


A time
When Evil and Darkness
Doth gather

Young children
Rushing house to house
Wanting candy and nothing else

A time
To kneel down
And say a prayer

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My wife and I are ready for this night, front porch light will be on, and bowls of candy ready to be given out. My wife is afraid to answer the door, so the duty is mine.

    i'd pray for Snickers bars and popcorn balls with red candies embedded in them.

    i suppose Hank has been tipped over while sitting in his Utah outhouse on many Halloween nights.
