October’s Halloween Night

October’s Halloween Night

written by: Soulla Christodoulou



The night echoed with cackling witches and swishing broomsticks
As families huddled under blankets afraid to watch spooky flicks
Of gooey green liquid and magic hexes and spells
Of fire and ghouls and red-hot burning hells
The moon shone, an ever watchful eerie disc in the sky
Following every movement from way up high
Teenagers donned their indigo capes and scarlet lips
Pointy hats on heads as flowing black skirts swayed on their hips
A hooting night owl breaks the eerie silence
A black cat slinks on padded paws, a creaking fence
Grey misty smoke rises from the distant fields
While imaginary monsters and trolls wait with their shields
There are trick or treat pranks and silly songs and jokes
With baited breath the youths await expecting a hoax
But it’s neither surreal nor real, with a chill and a fright
Because tonight is October’s Halloween night
