Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat

The leaves gently brush across the crisp autumn tarmac

Leaving a carpeted wonder behind

The clock strikes six and everything’s dark

Just in time for the wizards and witches

The hour has arrived for the treaters to roll out

Down the street on ghostly skateboards

Little goblins, little witches, little ghosts, little trolls

March down the street in the town

Trick or treat come their calls as they near

With a knock on your door outside

Little giggles play out as you draw near

As treats come out little hands come about

Happy Halloween to all and goodnight

Off they tread through crisp leaves with little time

To fright down the street with their rhyme

To haunt another with a knock and a shock

Their bags are filled high with a smile

It’s seven o’clock, a yawn edges onto their face

It’s been a good lot, now they’re ready to trot

Back home to bed ‘til next year

Happy Halloween and goodnight

Thank you for my fright

Until next year

When Halloween comes again

Pumpkin blown out

Decorations taken down

Treats are all gone

A quiet night can be had

We sit and reflect until a door slams

With ghostly hands

Oh my, oh dear

What was that?
