Tread cautiously the night
Of Jack O’ Lanterns
Enticing amber fingers
Lick through carved out eyes
The smile if that is
What you see
Beckons you closer
Watch from a distance the flame
She licks and dances
Playing with your mind
Those who walk in costume
Are they really what they seem
What lies beneath
Who lies beneath
Do they perform her tasks
When nights umbrella
Hangs overhead
Crying for her workers
Silent to your ears
Watch them walk the street
Tread cautiously the night
For many have been lost
The night of Halloween
The flame will never be extinguished
Till all of us are gone
