A clown, a butcher, a nurse and a freak.

What horrors will they encounter tonight?

Sugary goods they brave the night to seek,

Giving prepared neighbors a healthy fright.


Upon a certain house they do stumble,

Not a single decoration in sight.

But inside with lights and a faint mumble,

They dare to knock, walking into the light


Out the house a certain man appears,

Bearing a nefar’ous smile on his face.

He bids the costumed children to “come here”

Inviting these poor children to his place


These kids never did leave, at least not sane

Changed by this man’s “candy” they did remain
