This is actually meant to be read on Sunday as you wait patiently for the goblins to come knocking at your door.
A Timely Trick or Treat (Halloween Irony)
The time of year has come again
when children change their looks;
Pretending to be someone else
like heroes, ghosts or crooks.
They walk in bunches down the street
and go from door to door.
They say politely, “Trick or Treat”
in costumes we adore.
Sweet smiles shine behind their masks
as they go on their way.
They’re candidates in training;
Polls close in just two days.
