Howling and hooting sets the tone for tonight
Alabaster skin shows a child is full of fright
Lover’s lane is as creepy as artery’s spackle.
Laughter distorted as a witch’s cackle.
Omnivorous owls fleeing from Frankenstein
Werewolves and skeletons showing their spine.
Excited warlocks eating eye of newt toast.
Ethereal entities in the form of eerie old ghosts
Necromancy practiced as vampires swoon.
Frenzied entities playing a merry October tune.
Under a harvest moon, ghouls and banshees on the run.
Not for those who have no whimsy or sense of holiday fun.
