“I thought we might as well get into the spirit of Halloween this week, and get all cackly. Smiles. October has scurried by with the swiftness of falling leaves and fading daylight.”
Ghosts, goblins, witches,
Jack-O-Lanterns missing stitches.
Foul-smelling toad brew
like some animals at the zoo.
The undead rise
to scare kids, I surmise.
Costumes of pirates, superheroes,
princesses, and scarecrows.
If you manage not to get eaten
you’ll have a basket of goodies to treat on.
