This Is Halloween

 

As Halloween 2016 comes to a close, I figured that I would post a poem that I wrote almost 7 years ago. Of course, this was inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas. Enjoy.

In our little town of Halloween,
Tricks are cruel and pranks are mean.
I do admit we have strange ways of doing things,
In our little town of Halloween.

Forbidden love must not last.
For a spell; a witch will cast.
No need to hide behind a mask,
In our little town of Halloween.

A ghostly dog roams the cemetery at night.
But the fright he causes is common.
The air is always in a fog.
small children can’t play outside for long,
In our little town of Halloween.

In our town;
Yes, this place we call home.
The atmosphere is serene,
And we are left alone.
Still there are those fit to wander.
Whose thoughts begin to ponder.
In our little town of Halloween.

Jack and Sally are meant to be.
Even an outsider could see.
Yet Sally’s master says no.
This story is a twist on Romeo and Juliet.
Given the fact the characters are dead,
In our little town of Halloween.

Although this is a weird town,
Say if you may.
The traditions that the townspeople uphold,
Create a holiday.
But lucky as it seems,
For everyday is Halloween.
In our little town of Halloween.
