What lies at the bottom of the Halloween bag?
Monsters, ghouls, vampires, ghosts perhaps?
The forlorn wrapper of a Snickers bar?
The chocolaty smell of the scrumptious?
Effervescent gleam, candy scream
House to house, they run and skip
The Candy beckons with chocolate dreams
Which house is more finely dressed
Decor combat, the new game
Pumpkins and lights hold court here
Flickering glow in the darkness
