here's one for the season

Here on All Hallows Eve, moon bright
the only night he walks sight seen.
Among all the other moons time
he lurks in the dark for release.
Lookingto stop constant voices
by doing terrible bad deeds.
Let all of you Mommies and Dads
keep your lassies and lads in sight.
On this night when they get to play
as witches and ghouls to gain treats.
Watch out however for this one
who walks among you without mask.
Ever watching, smiling, alone
with no children coming to him.
Even as the kiddies frolic
and gladly call out trick or treat.
Never stop being vigilant
while the wee ones enjoy the night.

aye Budd, a time we much take much
care for our children... there was
a time we did not have to fear this
but "this one" walks among the
innocent these days to ruin the
beauty of childhood once had....

wonderful warning!

I am happy to say parents I've observed in these past decades do, indeed, hover protectively over their little witches and goblins. Good contribution to the October flavors, Budd. ~~ Diana

Wonderful 'cautionary tale', Budd! Enjoyed your verbiage to tug our emotions inwardly past, even as we're ever watching, progressively, anymore.

Let us be vigilant but let the children keep their innocence as long as possible and enjoy Halloween the way it has to be.

Well done Budd

Timely warning that all might not be as it seems on All Hallows Eve! There are weirdos out there that would take advantage of this night...

I like the acrostic style here and, things may not be any different than they were ever but, awareness is a good thing.

Seems to be our greatest fear these days. Among other fears. I would have to place the blame directly on the media who sensationalize every aberrant situation out there, where we begin to think that there is a bogeyman in every neighborhood–– at least that's what the maps of sexual predators show us. It's sad when I see the long line of cars waiting to pick up children after school.

I haven't got the statistics. But I would venture to say that is no more dangerous for kids to go out trick-or-treating today than it was in the 1950s when we went out alone in a very bad neighborhood for hours on a cold night.

Makes one think of when we'll have a day called: Normal Day, given life on the streets is getting to be Halloween 24/7.

Wise advice indeed... so sad that the children of this generation cannot experience the freedom and innocence of old...

Ab-so-lutely, Budd. There is evil about and you are right, the only mask they wear are the ones they are born with.
