Welcome Halloween by Paul Lonardo


graveyards, ghosts, and screams
black cats and jack-o-lanterns
welcome Halloween

no room left in hell
the living shelter in place
that’s a zombie feast

the porch lights are on
a haunted house on the hill
don’t dare ring the bell

high above the corn
night skies fill with flapping sounds
winged scarecrows take flight

candy corn rots teeth
apples are a healthy choice?
one bite and blood flows
