A Spooky Time Called Halloween

A Spooky Time Called Halloween

A Poem by Christina May Shanaberg

A SPOOKY TIME CALLED HALLOWEEN

 

The night had grown dark,

As the monsters began their walk;

Witches flew their brooms up high,

Among the bats in the sky;

Ghosts floated across the land,

Beside crooked men with crooked hands;

Vampires' fangs dripping blood

And the dead emerged from the mud,

As twisted, wrenched ghouls roamed about

And the insane ventured out;

Skeletons wandered through the streets,

In search of "tricks or treats;"

So, when they knock on your door,

Pretend you don't live there, anymore,

Because what's outside will make you scream;

It's a spooky time called "Halloween."

 

Great

Not one of my favorite subjects or time of year. I like the part in search of trick or treats to the end of the poem. So many bad things happen on Halloween, like kids getting things that they shouldn't in their treats ( very sad) or older ones doing things they think is funny and it is anything but funny when they distroy property. It used to be so much fun. Good write though.

You describe what sounds to me like a proper, good Halloween night, full of spooks hungry for candy.
