A new take on an old classic, adjusted for the season
Twas All Hallows’ Eve

Twas All Hallows’ Eve, and all through the crypt
Not a feature had been missed, nor spiderweb slipped
The pumpkins were carved with a candle inside
Awaiting the children along for the ride

Children all dressed up, as demons and ghouls
With a trick or treat chorus to coax sweets from fools
With long flowing capes and shiny new dresses
Brave Superheroes and Disney princesses

Whilst out in the yard there are adults at play
Acting their age as they can for one day
Wrapped in their costumes, their veils and shrouds
A veneer to ward off realities clouds

As all children play in the light of the moon
Reaping a time that is over too soon
Kids of all ages, let loose off their reins
With their bright pilfered candy and lewd drinking games

As phantoms walk freely, and ghosts take their place
Demons tread nearly, within Angels’ space
Smiling grimly, yet proud of the sight
Of a balance spun freely, wove into the night

Nights that have drawn in, that swallow the day
The plights we are born in, that wither away
And hide in the shadows, forgotten till dawn
Hemmed in night’s curtain, stretched out till the morn

A tapestry drawn out, a treaty a truce
Where everyone present can share pumpkin juice
And play in the shadows, where light and dark lay
“Hallows eve to all, and to all a good day!”
