Samhain, a poem written by Bartholomew Barker at
Vlad Bagacian



written by: Bartholomew Barker



Send the kids to trick or treat
With your parents tonight
Let’s be alone when the walls
Between the worlds grow thin

Before it was an excuse to wear sexy costumes
Before it was an excuse for kids to beg candy
Before it was co-opted by the Christians

Back when it was a celebration of the harvest
Back when it was about remembering the dead
Back when it was about surviving the winter

Let’s turn off all our devices
We’ll set a fire and celebrate
Like good old fashioned Pagans
Naked beneath the moon
