On Halloween the Goblins Rule

A poem about Halloween

On Halloween the goblins rule
Kids can't wait till after school
They don their make believe
And with sacks their houses leave
A witch, a princess, an elfin fairy
A pirate, an ape-man - rather hairy
A ghost, vampire or a wizard
A mermaid, ladybug or a lizard
Knock on a door and eagerly wait
Candies acquired, isn't that great
Onward down pumpkin-lit streets
To collect a multitude of treats
Now and then a trick surprises
Spooky noises from creepy disguises
Those who are easily frightened
Have senses especially heightened
They'll go home before night's end
The stronger stay late, and wend
Their way, amid skeleton and ghoul
For on this night the goblins rule
