A Halloween themed poem
Halloween Jacked

The pumpkin stares out grimly
A tea light burns inside
Flickering unseemly
The tricks that grimace hides
The treats that it delivers
As it lights all hallows eve
The spills, the chills, the shivers
For those that still believe
For those who carve the lanterns,
Who crave a sculpted face
A hollowed haunted phantom
To light a hallowed space
Between the routine and the random
‘tween light cast and shadow’s shade
A life spent brief in tandem
A madman’s masquerade
A charade in which we’re shunted
Tricks and treats a playful sin
Where candy coats are fronted
Behind a pumpkins grin
