Back In The Day On Halloween Night (2014)

I remember the days when we’d go trick or treating. It was a time to dress up and go house to house, to get some candy, to fill up our bags.

We usually just put on stuff from around the house, and added a bit of Mama’s makeup. Or if we were lucky enough, someone in the family

would make us a costume.

.

I don’t remember ever speaking of the devil, per say. It was just a fun filled night. As soon as it got dark, we’d head off for our adventure.

A lot of the neighborhood would participate, and some houses would give us loads of candy, while others would give us a fright.

I can remember a gorilla coming from behind the bushes. Mr. Smith, down the street, had to have some fun too.

The most amazing thing back then was the popcorn balls that we ate. Quite a few people would make those, so we weren’t exactly sure

which house they’d come from.

.

Later on we evolved to the parents inspecting the candy, and then we could go to the local hospital, to have the candy x-rayed.

As an adult, I never could understand how that worked, but back in the day, that is just how it was. At the same time, we were always

told not to take candy, from a stranger, but on Halloween night, that thought went out the window.

Scary isn’t it? No costume required.

 

“Halloween was filled with fun and fright-

Evolving into the fall festival, at a particular site”.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (EMPTY BOWL)

The last time I looked-

The candy bowl was booked.

.

Lots of candy corn, to get to know-

Really and truly about to overflow.

.

And when I looked again, there was no candy to see-

I looked at the bottom, it was all the way empty.

.

How that happened I thought I’d never know-

As my curiosity began to grow.

.

So I filled up the candy bowl once again-

And waited for a while, until the moment when-

.

The children came and ate every last piece-

As a matter of fact, they had one heck of a candy corn feast.

.

Children are like that, as we all know-

And many adults also keep the delicious habit in tow

.

The last time I looked-

The candy bowl was booked.

Time, to do a huge candy stock.
