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
