I remember my share of "uncomfortable" nights after Trick or Treating as a kid.....I guess it was worth it - or was it????


Halloween magic, night of tricks
Kids in costumes getting a candy fix!
Parents are wary, eyes open wide
Behind a bush is where goblins can hide.

Children in costume, through neighborhoods roam
Returning with their bounty back to their home.
Sorting through goodies, trading their treats
The one night a year when candy is all they eat!

So be ready for the doorbell, and give the kids their pick
You’ve got to give them treats or expect a scary trick!
Those hungry kids expect to get a goodly share of yummies -
Then late that night they’ll all awake with very upset tummies!!

Man, I'm really late on this one! It is so cute. I really do think you have what it takes to write a children's book! It's your "happy-go-lucky" attitude. Thanks for a great poem.

Getting upset tummies was part of the fun back then. I remember being able to roam around till midnight when I was a kid. Nowadays, kids can't trick or treat after the sun sets. I know it's for the children's good. It's just a sad irony when safety concerns emasculate a fun holiday. There's always gotta be one sicko out there somewhere to ruin everybody else's good time. As for your title, it's nice to see somebody else who appreciates Ogden Nash. Liquor is quicker, doncha know.

hahahahaha....this is delightful -- flashback, indeed ! Well done. (I'm not admitting to the "tricks", I'm much too old for paddling now.
BUT, one is NEVER too old for the treats, yes ? ::grin::

Flashback! Flashback! Arkansas. Small town. Trick or treating. Turning outhouses over (yes, outhouses). I hated the treats, like doing the tricks. Flashback! Flashback! Thank you Pamela, you made me think as a kid again. It's better this time, no one is here to paddle by butt for all the meanness I got into.
