Will any super heroes, super villians
or princesses from the Sea
knock on my door hold out their bags
and cry out Trick or Treat?
My dog is dressed in a pirate hat
my cat is sporting gargoyle’s wings
and I am dressed up like a ghost
we’re ready for Halloween.
My Jack O Lantern is lit
my trees are hung with bones
my demons are in the attic
my zombies are lurking downstairs.
We’re all eagerly waiting
for someone to appear
to knock on our door
so that we will know-
Dinner is served.
