Halloween, Oh Halloween

Halloween, Oh Halloween

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

It’s that special time of year again

So come as your not…

 

you can go with tradition

And be a haunting ghost

To hide from those demons

For one brief moment.

 

Go as that princess

You’ve always dreamed of being

So you can captivate Prince Charming

That’s also at the party…

 

Just remembering

He’s also in disguise.

 

Step into the limelight

As your favorite celebrity

And pretend this gathering

Is the Oscars or Grammys.

 

The Choices are endless if you like

To give a good fright,

Like a witch or vampire

And if you enjoy electricity

How bout Frankenstein.

 

But for a really good scare

There’s an endless array of politicians

To make your agenda clear.

 

Halloween, oh Halloween

How I love thee

For it is the one day a year

It’s acceptable to not be you.

Humor hides several pointed barb, I like watching the unthinking snag themselves.
I guess I have a warped mind, I once went to a Halloe E'en party as a "Dear John" letter, dressed as a toliet with a letter taped to the tank--told ya', warped mind.

LOVE the second line . . . short & sweet, but saying so much. (Except "your" should be you're). I love the double meaning as you describe the possibilities for dressing up for a Halloween party, but you are also referring to our real life disguises. Your closing stanza is a nice wrap on this idea of spending an evening being OK about not being oneself. Small improvement -- Prince Charming who's at the party (rather than "that's"). Nice selection of details, especially the politicians being a scary array. I love Halloween & it's fun to read your take on it.

It may be the only day it is acceptable, but we hide the rest of the year, too. Oh yes we do. I am staying home and passing out candy to the kiddos. ...and stealing reece cups from my own candy bowl. That is the only day that is acceptable, too! Ha! Angi~

You know, Halloween is one of my favorite "traditions", and even at my age, I always plan out my costume and typically attend several parties. This was a treat...very clever, witty, nice flow and form, and I really enjoyed the theme. Nicely done!

Thank you very much young lady, so nice to see you around.
...come as you are ... or come as your not...
be not afraid of the splatter and rot.
It cant all be real?
the mayhem you see-
performed with such abandon
and with such --glee

Really?
what choice have you got?

The demons and witches
in life know your name---
you know just who
covers their shame.
Hide if you must--
but this you can trust
For one night a year
without worry or blame
hidden from light
your secrets remain.
