I knew it
must be close to Halloween,
had moved into my shed,
he had a
friend, with skin of moldy green
spoke at all, coz he was dead.
his pets along, three shrieking cats,
and a very noisy ghost,
dropped in and she had seven bats,
neighbors on each side moved to the coast.
They made a
noisy racket every night,
and howls that echoed down the street,
practiced every kind of ghastly fright,
to use out
in the world for trick or treat.
moved in, his coffin too,
trudged around and begged for blood,
taught some trolls to yell out “BOO!”
heard and fainted with a thud.
I’m glad now
that they’re gone, I must confess,
I never got
much sleep while they were here,
had to clean up all that mess,
I hope they
go to somewhere else next year!
So watch the
trick or treaters – watch them good,
of them just want a candy meal,
knows? Somewhere in your neighborhood
who are very, very REAL!
