Early Advice For Halloween

It's that time of year the ghouls' are about
Dark clouds and a full moon now set the scene
Kids will knock my door, trick or treat they'll shout 
I'll give them sweets so they don't think I'm mean.

Last Halloween  I was not so lucky
Was too busy didn't answer my door 
I dashed out my house, I was late for work
Trod on green slime they had put on the floor.

So when you go shopping buy lots of sweets
You do not want them thinking that you're  mean
Then when the kids knock, hand over the treats
And light up their faces this Halloween.

Will be money well spent, take my advice
Green slime on your floor ,they will not think twice.

Oh my! Green Slime. I haven't dealt with that. Although, I haven't bought candy either, because where I am, they don't seem to come door to door on this street. Well done Tom :)

Thanks Heidi, I dont mind young children who knock the door with their parents but there are some older kids who take it a bit too far. Tom.

Hi Tom, Really enjoyed reading your Poem. Halloween is celebrated to a certain extent her in South Africa, mainly with parties and dressing up. However most of us have electric fences on top of pallisade fences - people are wary to open their gates let alone their door. We have a high crime rate in S.A. In fact, we were held up at gunpoint in our driveway. They followed us and drove in before the gates could close - terrifying experience. Regards,Jennifer.

G'day Tom … sounds right up my alley. One year my brother answered the door in an imitation blood soaked apron and severed hand. Poor kids were in total shook, but took the treats anyway - thanks Tom - Lindsay

Thanks Timothy. Nothing worse than gooey green slime lol

We always buy more candy than we need because whatever is leftover we get to eat ourselves. Nicely done, Tom.

Thanks sunshine, no they don't here , will be back in UK before then. It's gotten big in the uk, shops full of ghoul stuff, personally I don't think its a good idea, some of the masks could give the eldeley a heart attack. Hope all's well. Tom
