It's October 31st; tonight is Hallowe'en.
We aren't "trick or treating"; my youngest is 15.
Wearing masks and begging candy - cute if you are small -
Not as cute, however, when you're more than 6 feet tall.
He is disappointed; this was, once, his favorite night...
Moonlit leaves that rustled in the wind and caused a fright,
Dressing up and seeing friends in costume on the street.
He is not the only one who's missing "trick or treat."
No one comes to our house; the driveway's dark and long,
Yet I still buy candy bars, although I know it's wrong.
Guess who'll eat the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups tonight.
If you're guessing that it's me, I'm thinking you'd be right.
