Trick, No Treat

Updated on October 19, 2019

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Ghost of Haloween
Ghost of Haloween

Trick or treats

Children screams

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?

Nobody knows.

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.

      I'm glad to see you back Clive and hope you are feeling better. A wonderful creepy poem which made me think of the 'Pied Piper', luring all those children. Have a happy and safe Halloween.

      The Clive Method of Spooky! Works for me. Now about this being absent for so long. I don't want to hear lame excuses like almost dying. Apparently God has more people for you to pester.
