The Halloween Warning

 By: Samantha Riga

October 31st, a time for tricking or treating

Extravagant costumes and excessive candy-eating

But while you search for the next decorated door,

Know that for some, it’s not candy they look for.

 

This is the day where the spirits come out

The day they aren’t just lurking or wandering about

Yes today, keep your head up and try to tread lightly

Looking in dark corners causes risk for what you might see

 

It’s an eerie themed night, the tricksters come out to play

Tonight, watch for more than just balloon-marked sewage drains

Take this poem as a warning, when you say your next “trick or treat!”

The possibilities are endless as to who you might meet.
