Halloween Critters

Halloween Critters

Written by Millie Jenny C

Peering out from behind street lights.
Wink in, wink out
Dart here, dart there.
Monsters walk alongside princes and princesses.
Bums and high-falutin characters, devils and witches.
Bed sheets and tapestries
Torn and tattered . . .
Equally good costumes
No tattered and torn outfits turned away.
Pumpkins, brown sacks, plastic critter-covered
plastic bags stuffed full of candy & goodies.
Visiting neighborhood homes, relatives, friends & strangers.
Dressing up and hitting neighborhood parties.
Bobbing for apples
Winning prizes for
Best /worst dressed / best-worst costumes / most creative
Most original / Most “crazy”
As the Halloween cavalcade marches onward.
