October 31st a night for kids and trick or treat 

We're sticking with tradition dressing up to hit the street 

Our party piece a song a dance or maybe tell a joke

The wheel of fun is turning with laughter mirrors smoke


There's nurses ghosts and witches don't forget the bonnie bride 

There's doctors from emergency a docker from the clyde 

I've chatted with a werewolf had a word with Bill and Ben 

Took orders from a general who was running short of men


When superman arrived all eyes were focused on the door 

With wonder woman by his side and heroes by the score 

Batman's here with Robin and Tarzans brought his Jane 

A cop just nicked a villain around his ankle ball and chain 


A fairy from the garden waved her want and cast a spell 

An angel came from heaven and the devil came from hell 

A gangster in a pinstripe suit with gun in hand looks mean 

As the magic and excitement ends another Halloween

            Not quite sure where you live ,Peto, since there's a dearth of information on your homepage, but feel it is probably America as they (you?) seem to take Halloween very ?seriously? than where I live. More power to your elbow if you enjoy it, but personally I would lock myself in a safe room until it was all over 😉

            Hi Dave
            I'm from Glasgow in Scotland
            My little sister was born on Halloween
            I think that's why it holds a special meaning for me
            Thank you very much for reading and commenting

              I've loved this poem before and I love it again. You must repost this for Halloween! I am more of a Christmas kind of gal (LOL!) but this poem was a great start to what has been quite the literary journey! Great job!
