That's the last on Halloween for this year. I promise.

Haunted houses awaken
All ghosts that were forsaken
Lonely souls they are no more
Look how they fly out the door
On a dare they'll gladly scare
Witches, ghouls, they do not care
Even werewolves are fair game
Everyone they see they blame
No one's safe and that's a shame

Boo - not scarey to me, way back when I was a child I used to go 5 nites that Halloween night out amongst the neighbors, was tradition, now it's only for one night. Things change as time passes.

Not sure if the flow is perfect in this poem but it's still a nice poem that kids will like. Who knew that Halloween inspires you. I certainly didn't.

"Lonely souls they are no more" - I've never thought of spirits in a haunted house quite like this. I've had the not-so-great-pleasure of sharing space with spirits. Perhaps because my experiences have been bad ones, I couldn't bring myself to think of them as lonely. Great work on this Acrostic piece, Regis! You broadened my perspective, and it's a fun poem to read. Love and Hugs~
