The sound of children’s laughter

Shadows lurking among the trees

Footsteps coming after

Voices begging “please”

 

The forest is alive

With ghosts, spirits and other haunts

The living they would deprive

Of all needs and wants

 

Be careful as you walk

They are behind every corner

When you hear them do not balk

They wish to make you a mourner

 

Run, don’t hesitate

When you hear their chatter

For your heart they wish to decimate

In your chest they’ll place the dagger

 

Halloween is a time for the foolish

To believe they are here for fun

Their intent is merely ghoulish

So hurry up and run
