Ransom or Forfeit - Everything Halloween

Its pitch black in the meadow
Shadows everywhere.
With a heavily beating heart 
I start to walk through.

When out jumped a " I dont know"
Was too fast for me to see,
Have goosebumps up my arms
Need to find somewhere to wee.

When i felt a hand on my neck
I screamed and you can guess,
No longer need to find a place 
have already wet myself.

Flickering lights and ghoulish  faces 
Are  heading straight for me
Lights of orange and black
Are steadily blinding me.

They start to dance around me
Wrapping me in duct tape
Marched me shouting to my home
Thinking a ransom they will take

Only my old dog  at home
Saw the figures and then saw me
She jumped at them snarling
Causing their masks to break away 

Was then that I could see
Was my neighbours children
Oh what a forfeit this will be
For the next three months
A valeted car will pleasure me

    It's always good to see the humor come out in your poetry. I like the serious deep topics of course, but also like to see you having fun. Looks like there maybe some Halloween tradition I don't know about lol. Great work and good luck in the contest.
