Halloween Nights - Halloween Night

Written by: Russell Sivey

Halloween Nights The image of death Complete with scythe and old robe Walking towards you Down harshly-lit pumpkin path Through dreary cemetery Old leaves decaying Crackling sound scare passersby Darkness of the night Keeps everyone on the edge Ghosts play, riling each other Terror impedes growth Of poor small children passing The haunted mansion With all bats flying around Screams of unwary people Dances of creatures And skeletons scaring all Who dare to walk by All of these pieces of hell Happen on Halloween nights
