Verse and worse

Devils and wraiths and witches and warlocks
Dastardly demons that tug at their forelocks
Are they netherworld dwellers ever so keen?
No, they're just children, enjoying Halloween

Quite right, Bernie!

Thankfully here you never will meet
Kids at the door to trick or treat
I've never celebrated Halloween
Does that make me ever so mean?

Halloween isn't big in Australia, Ayak. Stores have only started selling Halloween gear in the past couple of years.

Please tell me when you have the next title-writing contest on your blog!

We live back off the road, so we never get any trick-or-treaters here at the manor. I miss seeing all the cuties in their costumes.

Love your verse David.

I so enjoy the kids all dressed up but oddly enough, we had very few trick or treaters last eve. Now, I wonder what I'll do with all the leftover candy? tee hee

The best I saw last night were two brothers who were dressed as lego blocks.

Had a fun night here - the most kids I've ever had! Including kids from the school where I used to teach and some of the kids I tutor showed up!

A ring of the bell, a knock at the door
We all know the reason the visit is for
Get out your candy and get out your sweet
'Cause if you do not they'll trick you not treat!

All was quiet in our road.
And I was too...... in reading mode.
Not a knock from trick or treat.
So i just put up my feet.

Good one David.
Were all your children in your rhyme of Halloween in their teen - whether thirteen or nineteen?
