Halloween Night (poem 43)
In a sharp left turn from the science stuff, here’s a Halloween poem for you. And, yes, it was crazy fun to write “nougat” in a poem…
Let all the ghouls out,
watch vampires walk with clout,
hear ghosts boo their boos,
snarling pirates with temporary tattoos.
On this night, you can be
something funny or something scary.
You can try on someone else for size,
go hidden within their guise,
and for this, you get many a prize.
‘Cause it’s also a night for treats,
and, boy, do we love the sweets–
all the way from our heads to our feets!
Say the words, you’ll get the candy.
As deals go, it’s mighty dandy.
From candy bars to licorice,
from nougat to caramelish,
from gummy worms to lollipop,
from chocolate to lemon drop,
may the candy never stop!!
