Orange to Purple Night

The sky has a glow, a hue of orange That leads to the joy of jack-o-lanterns Bats do fly through the air looking for food And lights in the house come from small lanterns Vampires prowl tonight as mere creatures do Moon begins to rise by the edge of night Looking orange as any other glow Right before nightfall there is little light The witch approaches the graveyard gateway Carrying her cauldron with her laughing Knowing that this night has special powers She looks for spiders that do the eating A pile of spiders find their way on her She puts them inside her boiling cauldron Magically her potion comes into view She uses this drink to bring a demon The beautiful creature goes with the witch Into the night looking for some poor sap To mess up his life completely before Ruining all that he has this poor chap The night starts to lose its bright orange look Now is replaced with a deep purple glow Color enhances this festive Halloween The witch and the demon bring their own show
