Trick, No Treat
Trick or treats
Candy shops close
It is the rise of the Halloween ghost.
No chocolate no lollipops to lick
Parents hide because all will be trick
Where could all the candies have gone?
But there are whispers about the Halloween ghost.
He takes all the candies to lure children to his grave
Where he traps their little soul and makes them his slave
Folk tale? Maybe. But who to tell.
For the Candies are still missing and maybe in his grave they dwell.
Full moon, little witches and werewolves go from door to door.
“Trick or treat!” they shout. But only turnips and broccoli was available once more.
Their sad little faces dampened the night.
But a trail of candies appeared to their delight
Beautifully wrapped and attractive indeed
Candies of all sorts, just what the children need.
The followed the candy trail and disappeared in a mist
Eating and laughing, unaware of the bliss
“Hello little kiddies” A spooky figure suddenly appeared
The children looked up and saw what they feared
It was the Halloween Ghost and he had them trap in his tomb
They screamed and shouted, but the candies were their doom
Now on Halloween night the kids lock indoor
For they fear they will be taken by the Halloween Ghost once more
Now Parents lock their windows and bolt their doors.
To keep their children safe from the Halloween Ghost.
