Trick or Treat

                                         This is the time of the year
                                         When tricks are turned,
                                         And treats are tendered.       

                                         When ghastly ghoul,
                                         And skeleton
                                         Are proudly shown –
                                         And fearfully hidden.
                                         This is the time of the year.        

                                         This is the time of the year
                                         When blood will boil,
                                         And banshees banter.       

                                         When wizened witch,
                                         And currish cat
                                         Shall own the night –
                                         And evil is risen.
                                         This is the time of the year.       

                                         This is the time of the year
                                         When brickbats fly,
                                         And venom spews.       

                                         When Democrat,
                                         And ‘Publican
                                         Are proudly shown –
                                         And fearfully hidden.
                                         This is the time of the year.
