Halloween?  No!

Halloween is for sissies,

For kiddies and such.

Not for the minded,

Intelligent touch.

I’ll not be swindled,

And fooled with a scare.

No candy from me,

Not even a dare.

Now I hear knocking,

At my front door.

Ignore this I shall,

I will do no more!!

Children on candy,

Is too much a rush!

It messes their teeth,

Their minds become mush!

More banging is heard,

Just leave me alone!

I’ll not be a part,

Of this weirding new zone!

There are shapes at the windows,

Dear God they want in!

The devil is coming,

He senses my sin!

Moaning I hear!

They whisper my name.

Fear them I won’t,

Please make this a game!

A man was found dead,

Halloween night.

They say that he suffered,

A terrible fright.

Remember this story,

Next year they’ll be back.

Have candy all ready,

Or they’ll help you to pack . .

    Pam, your poem and photo perfectly describe what Halloween is supposed to be! A night for fun and mischief…all innocent and good natured.

    Candy will always rule on Halloween. But those ghosts and goblins won’t get any of MY chocolate! They can visit Mark for their chocolate fix. He has more chocolate than Hershey’s! Lol!

        We’ve had a little burst of Halloween for a few years now Pam, our town is only a small retirement village…but life being what it is…it grew. Children wanting to get into trouble everywhere so they began to celebrate it even though it isn’t something we normally do. So there seems to be more shadows and eerie sounds by night. I thought it was just the old codgers staggering home from the pub at night (after saying they were going fishing)…but I’m wondering now 🤣
