HALLOWEEN TALES

They say that ghosts abound on Halloween,
and there are witches flying high on brooms.
They tell me that sometimes they can get mean,
and everyone should hide inside their rooms.

They say that ghouls will visit graves at night
and dig up bodies they intend to eat.
They say it is a weird and ghastly sight,
and from these things we all should fast retreat.

These scary tales are fabricated lies
all conjured up by people who are mean
and like to hear young children's frightened cries
on this most eerie night called Halloween.

I don't believe a word of them, do you?
I think I'll bolt the door in case they're true.
