Halloween

by Stephen Cord, Gallatin

 

Witches and glitches and

goblins and goons,

All dance to the sound of

the most hideous tunes.

 

And monsters that prey

on the unwanted guest,

When they sneak in to partake

of this frightening fest.

 

It’s All Hallows’ Eve,

and the sun’s fast asleep.

An the spirits are out

with the creatures that creep.

 

And the dogs are a-barking

at terrible sights.
