The Night Creatures.

The Night Creatures.

A Poem by Paul Bell

They walk through the darkness
The night creatures
Searching out their prey
With stealth like accuracy
Gathering pace
As the scent gets stronger
Teeth baring 
Sharpened claws extended
As the prey await their fate
The hairs go up
A sudden quiet descends
Then the screams reach fever pitch
It’s too late
Surrounded
Nowhere to run
They have you
Trick or treat mister
Blast
Caught again.

At first I was like, ok he decided to turn Gothic. But deep down there was this voice that kept saying, just wait for it.
Also, I just saw that everyone said the same thing more or less, so I'm happy to be adding to the originality of the comments here. lol

Right over my head.
Seriously of the moment, as I am sure was always your intention. Love the unexpected twist.
Thrillin & chillin.
Actually relieved, would be more appropriate, it was a tad scary....N

Kids can be so scary when they are on a mission. This felt really creepy. I wish you luck Paul :)

After all that anticipation, I was fearfully waiting for the kill, then ... ...those damn kids on Bonfire night! This was a well written poem, which gave me a chuckle( of relief!) at the end. Thank you.

It's just scrounging with the parents approval.
Never had that in my day son, not a bit of it. If we wanted sweets we had to nick 'em from the corner shop. Knock, knock....yes, "trick or treat mister"......f**k off........slammmmmmmmmm
