Trick Or Treat

Spooks ring my doorbell Scare me out of my britches I bribe them with treats Imps come by the gross They get tons of bubble gum I keep the Snickers I'm threatened with tricks My cat bares his fangs at them He likes Snickers too Robert L.

Witty haiku series, Bob. Do you really keep the Snickers for yourself? I only buy candy I don't like so I won't be tempted if there is some left over. Enjoyed and wish you well in the Halloween contest! Love, Carolyn
