Tag Archives: Trick or treat

Halloween, a time of sweetness and joy for the giddy kiddies, to an almost cloying degree.

Hollow Feeling On Halloween.

They came a’knocking on my door,
Two kids demanding a sugary score,
One little monster with a slavering jaw-
Another creep extending a covetous claw-
They took every treat I proffered, then more,
Those tricky kids are in cahoots with the candy store.

One for the kids on Halloween. Put the goodies out by the gate with this note, and it kinda worked. We weren’t picked completely clean.

Just A Bit Of A Bite, Please.

If you come here to trick or treat
We’ve an abundance of treats to eat,
But greedy ghosts and ghouls beware;
Don’t take more than your fair share.

Should you fill your goody bag to the brim
You may find your sunny smile turning grim.

Eating our entire supply of Kool Mints- grossly fulfilling,
But losing a filling on Halloween- painfully chilling,
So if you find all these sweets impossible to resist
Don’t blame us when you visit the dentist
