Halloween in Practice

A poem recalling the usual festivities of Halloween in one person’s world, 1971- circa 2001, experienced against a new backdrop of changing times . . .

Community Halloween: Festivity

Halloweenie
baby I be
born not on but
born to be free
Never did I
want to believe
a day would come
to make me think
twice about what (?)
exactly I
care to believe
about this day
“All hallows eve”!

Pshaw🙄 I say
It’s about fun!
Dress to impress
Find some contrast
Take it outside
Make a message
All in good fun
No harm at all
Rewards for flair
Laughs for reward—
No matter what
we ought believe!


Thanks for visiting!
Happy Halloween 🎃
