Hay bales, pumpkins, costumes and more –
Carnival games and candy galore;
With tricks, treats and everything sweet,
Thousands of people will come, that's for sure;
But it's really the kids that we do it all for.
They'll be there in droves – in masquerade clothes
Having the time of their lives, as everyone knows.
Buzz Lightyear will be there, and a Batman, or two,
Mr. Incredible and Winnie the Pooh.
Belle and her friends will be there this night,
Cinderella, Jasmine and, of course, Snow White.
Darth Vadars, Tiggers and Black Cats will abound;
Devils and Angels will be easily found.
Spidermen, Vampires and Hobos in rags
Will play freely together, filling their bags.
There'll be Snickers, Skittles, Kit-Kats and Nerds,
Dum-Dum Lollipops and things that go squirt;
Starburst, Tootsies, worms and bears, oh so gummy,
And hundreds of other things good for the tummy.
Chocolates, Caramels and Gum Drops, too –
Peppermint Patties and a
M&Ms, Reese's, and the famed Baby Ruth
Will satisfy each and every sweet tooth.
After a few frenzied hours, it will come to an end;
But we'll set it up next year and do it again!
I'm off to man the Pumpkin Pitch booth…
Happy Halloween! - M
