From house to house they filled their bags with sweets, Chocolate, popcorn balls, lollipops an assortment of treats.
Until they stumbled upon one creepy house, With crumbling walls and an old rusted gate. Fear takes over and they shuffle away. One by one afraid of what’s inside, The pale image of a scrawny man in the window peered outside.
His eyes were white and lifeless , Displeased and full of rage. The kids made their annual sacrifice, Leaving all of the candy made on the front stoop of his place.
As legend has it, The more candy procured and given to the Old Man near and dear, Better your chances are of surviving the following year.
His teeth are rotted, his breath like licorice. Skin like taffy and eyes of marshmallows, Hold your breath don’t dare say hello. Happy Halloween
