I donned my mermaid costume
Set up my crystal ball
Halloween’s a-comin’ (Golden Girls ref)
And I want to see it all
All the kids in costumes, maybe skeletons or ghosts
And love the homemade ones hidden under coats
It always snowed on Halloween
That fate made all kids cry
No one would see their costumes
When bundled to the eyes
Every treat was inspected
When tampering suspected–but
This year no funny clowns or angels seen afoot
No scary goblins or bloody masks for which to root
Lockdown surely necessary, and I agree
Our kids are all older but I worry for the wee
They love the fun of dressing up
Being what they wish this day
Maybe if they wait, next year IT will be gone away.
Carve those pumpkins, eat some sugar, dance along
Turn up “Thriller” – Michael Jackson’s famous song.
That’s my advice,
Please think twice–
Stay home, stay safe.
