Trick Or Treat

Is that  a poltergeist I hear
come rapping at my door?
No, just a little ghost with sack,
some candy to implore.

What fun it is to watch the kids
on every Halloween
as they come prancing to my door,
a most delightful scene.

There's Bill and Sue from down the street,
decked out as cat and mouse,
and here comes Johnny as the Count;
he's headed to my house.

The goody bowl is in the hall,
piled to the brim with candy,
and if by chance the bowl runs out,
there's more that I have handy.

So I will don my witch's hat,
pass out the treats with zeal,
and when I take my partial out
they'll think that I am real!
