Halloween, it’s trick or treat

Does that make it sickly sweet?

Would you prefer a devilish trick?

Or perhaps a marshmallow on a stick

Beware the goblins chasing ghosts

They’ll scare you out of your earthly host

Perhaps it’s better to just stay in

Away from all the spirited din

Remember, keep your doors shut tight

And turn on all the outside lights

Watch for witches, and green-eyed cats

And of course, those skeletons, riding bats

Beware of those who come your way

Unfriendly beings are not sweet today
