The following is a Halloween poem by franknbea
                      
Oh night of strange possibilities

Of ghost and goblins yet unseen

Skeletons dancing with vampires

Good gracious me it’s Halloween.

When small figures knock at your door

Shouting and screaming “Trick or Treat!”

And sometimes they still egg your house

Even after you give them a sweet.

When Michael Myers is back in town

All good teen age girls become soldiers

They arm themselves to the teeth

And take his destruction on their shoulders.

When a freaky piano solo gives you the willies

And your costume speaks of your creativity

With witches and ghouls and monsters abroad

Tonight there is no room for sensitivity.

When a Pumpkin takes on a strange significance

And people dress mostly in purple and green

When even the zombies perform a macabre dance

This is the night of all nights, Oh Halloween!
