When I saw them coming I knew what to do

Straightened out the white sheets and pulled my mask down, too.

When the doorbell rang I yanked it wide
Three sets of eyeballs stood there white eyed~

They didn't expect my ghostly "BOO"!

"Trick or Treat" one finally professed

My staring gaze...they thought me possessed.

I grabbed a handful of candy for each

And with an alabaster hand stretched out my reach~

I thought, "Another Halloween Conquest"!

    Oh, how I love this poem, Daniel! I would have been right beside you dressed up as a witch with a green face. I actually scared kids away before they took the candy! We think alike on "trick" or treat! Best wishes in John's contest! Love, Carolyn
