‘Twas the Night Before Halloween…

‘Twas the Night Before Halloween

‘Twas the night before Halloween and all through the house
All the creatures were stirring even Zombie mouse.
Cobwebs were hung on the chimney with care,
In hopes that gooey candy soon would be there.

The humans were cowering all scared in their beds,
While visions of  skeletons and treats danced in their heads.
Twix bars and Kit Kats, Rockets and Cheezies,
And no where a Pepto to settle their queezies.

When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter,
They peeked out to see what was the matter.
Toilet paper was strewn all over the tree,
And fireworks were lit for all to see.

The light of the moon showed horrible sights,
Werewolves and vampires, firemen and sprites,
Monsters and witches, and most horrible of all
Children so hungry, wanting candy from all.

Not just the 20 or 30 from houses near by,
But hundreds, bussed in and ready to cry,
If no candy was left after others had been,
They would riot, scream, and egg all the scene.

So from this do learn, a lesson so keen,
Children denied sugar can be so very mean.
Get thee to stores and buy treats in boxes and bags
Buy hundred packs and extras,until you must gag.

Now try to sleep. For this truly will pass.
Jack’o’Lanterns will shine as the children do mass,
Yelling for candy and treats they will fight.
Happy Halloween to all and to all a Good-Night!
