Hallowe'en

Is a nondescript costume
The way to go
For Hallowe’en?
Something placid
Or is quirky better?
It doesn’t matter.
For it’s Hallowe’en
Time to have fun
Dress up adult and child alike
Be something you’re not
For just one night
The world is a magical place
Of goblins ghouls and witches
Pirates, policemen and firemen
Nurses, showgirls and the lot
All of them something that

There not
Childhood fantasy reached again
For just one night.

    Exactly that is what it is. But there are risks. Mistaken for intruders one or two had been shot and killed. Great lines Sheilagh!
