"you can no more win a war than u can win an earthquake"-Jeannette Rankin

Scary ghosts and ugly ghouls,
Are haunting the halls of middle schools
Thoughts of witches, bats and black cats
Follow the kid’s home like sleazy rats.

Haunted houses and weeping willows,
Keeping heads from their comfy pillows.
Tree branches look like grabbing hands,
Just outside the window frame stands.

The sky has turned a putrid gray,
As kids begin their rides on hay,
They scream and shout in all the fun,
But do they notice the sinking sun?

The moon takes its rightful place,
It’s full tonight, there’s no empty space,
It’s dull outside, the stars are dreaming,
Tonight nobody wants them gleaming.

The darkness is king on Halloween,
There’s no light, and no birds to sing,
Everything is either sleeping or dead,
Trick or treating is over,
Everyone’s retired to their beds.
