Jack O' Lantern's Hallowed Eve

Jack O' Lantern jeers through 
molten screen
With fiery eyes and a fifth sense 
so keen
Masked goblins saunter in shadows 
unseen
Wily Jack swills jade folds with 
florescent stream
Billowing ghosts in phosphorescent, 
satin mantles teem
Stolid Jack bathes in Hoary Frost's 
velvety Vanilla Bean
Gaunt Scarecrow from barren field 
garnishes Per Diem
While gilded Jack siphons his rich, 
mellow meringue
Black-caped witch casts spells 
hinterland residual to glean
Domesticated Jack scans hearth 
skimming every melancholy dream
Rabid bats swarm o'er stinging 
insects with stealthy sheen
Endearing Jack charms fluttering 
moths with radiant gleam
Bleary-eyed werewolves' curdling 
howls seep through each woody 
seam
Spry Jack o'er quilted courtyard 
flutters his palling requiem
Creeping ghouls seek spilt warmth 
to redeem
Jilting Jack singes their hems with a 
boiling steam
