Clear Streets

Clear Streets

A Chapter by Dave Brown



COVID 19 is keeping

Halloween streets real clear

Except for many animals

Like wee rabbits and darling deer


They are going roud knocking 

On each door they are seeing

In costumes that make each animal

Look like a human being


With masks on who knows the dif

A recorder says ‘trick or treat’

When their sacks are stuffed to the brim

They flee away on really quick feet


House after house they rake it in

To store all away for the winter

With all the assembled food collected

Being registered on a laser printer


Chits are distributed to each animal

Re; the amount each had collected

With any incorrect tallied amounts

Being automatically printer corrected


Then off to caves and burrows

To settle in for the long cold spell

And if any goodies are left over by spring

They can make a few bucks if they sell

This is a brilliant (albeit somewhat warped) idea -- switching out the trick-or-treaters due to covid. I'm at that point in the summer, our temps still very hot so the tomatoes are pumping more radically than ever, & now I'm tomatoed out. My kitchen counters are covered with all different kinds of ripe ones, plus I frequently heave any with blemishes over the fence, thus the trick-or-treating extravaganza has begun for the deer, wild pigs, wild turkeys, & so on. A beautiful fawn was right on the other side of my fence as I was watering the other morning. They are coming in for the kill. My compost pile gets alot of action, too! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
