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"!
