Halloween is a day we could live without;

Most of us don’t even know what it is about.

The rug rats will be out knocking on our door;

Which most of us are not ready for.

Is it the All Saints, that we have to thank;

For kids coming around and threatening pranks?

Children in costumes are cute and sweet;

They come yelling. “trick or treat”.

Today Halloween is a rollicking playtime;

And the children think it is just fine.

The pranks and practical jokes are all in fun;

So Halloween is still enjoyed by the young.

So better watch out for Halloween night;

The kids going around the Block is quite a sight.

A grinning Jack-O-Lantern, lit up for Halloween;

Bobbing for apples is all part of the scene.

October thirty first is not the night to pick;

There’s black cats and witches on a broomstick.

The ghost, witches and goblins will get you if you don’t watch out;

So this is what Halloween is all about.
