Bah! Humbug! Halloween is Humbug!
By Elton Camp
Most holidays from pagan rites did arise
In the case of Halloween, it’s no surprise
It glorifies the macabre and even the dead
That alone is actually quite enough said
“But for the little kids it is just a fun day”
Is what so many will likely protest and say
But is that the type of “fun” that kids need
A night devoted to most insatiable greed?
On their insistent demand of “Trick or treat,”
People give them unwholesome things to eat
Perhaps it may be a sicko psycho out there
Who has a bit of poison that he can share
And this in a child’s mind might well stick
Vandalism’s okay if you just call it a trick
This wrong by the parents can be controlled
Kids won’t do it if the reasons they’re told
