The Monsters May Come Calling
Halloween is almost here
So prepare your home with care.
Decorate it horribly,
All visitors to scare.
Buy, or make your costumes-
Vampires, witches, ghouls,
Hang spider webs and skeletons,
There really are no rules.
Stock up on the candy
To prepare for trick-or-treat,
And make some special monster food
For your family to eat.
Carve a Jack-o-Lantern face
From a pumpkin chose’ with care.
Make it very eerie
So trespassers BEWARE!
But, while you enjoy festivities
And treat the night as fun,
Real monsters gather in the dark
Until their evil deeds are done.
They’ll probably come a calling
When your family’s fast asleep,
Checking unlocked doors and windows
So inside they can creep.
They’ll steal your children from their beds
And take them far away
To their gruesome, evil chambers.
So keep them safe and PRAY!
