The night calm, but busy with little ghouls and ghastlies
From ghosts, gremlins and vampyrs to other nasties
Illuminated by the silvery light of the Moon
Laughter still echoing from late afternoon
The sky, now velvet dark, lets temperatures drop
Trick or treaters continue non-stop
Sweets in bowls, handfuls taken
Class jealousies gone, at least forsaken,
Toes curl at the horrors of this one single night
Well-oiled into fun to keep away all the frights

  2. Topically done!
    I always regretted that the tricky treatment didn’t extend to our country. What fun it would have been! Although the fundamental religionists would have freaked.

    1. I like watching all the little monsters, Col, from a distance, obviously! Saw a black cat crossing the road earlier. A toddler black cat, that is!
