Tonight is Halloween

tonights the night when boys and girls
don disguises and see the world
around every corner there are monsters seen
because tonight is Halloween

tonights the night when the ghouls all play
they walk around on this special day
a werewolf howls at the moon
a zombie comes to seal your doom

with few clouds the skies are clear
the pumpkins' smile more like a sneer
a mummy makes sure his wrap his clean
because tonight is Halloween

ghosts go out on the haunt
witches do whatever they want
making little children scream
is what those creepy goblins dream

tonights the night when your fears come alive
they own the earth from nine to five
the night is when they feel their best 
the days when they go get their rest

but when the rooster starts to crow
the ghouls know that its time to go
for the daylight is what they most fear
but remember they'll be back next year.

    Oh I absolutly love this poem! You did a wonderful job on conveying the actual spirit of Halloween. Not some horny festival or children's favorite 'holiday' but the actual Halloween. Good job! And congrats on being featured.
