I Miss Trick-or-Treaters

shelley-lake-entrance-at-longstreet-at-night


No one in our neighborhood comes here to Trick-or-Treat.
There are just 3 houses down our long and private street;
There are some coyotes and no streetlights where we live.
We aren't worth the walk, despite the full-sized bars we give.

I remember Hallowe'ens when we would take the boys;
Autumn winds would rustle leaves and make a spooky noise.
Flashlights weren't a lot of help 'cause there's a lot of woods
On the way back home from other people's neighborhoods.

Thus, I cannot blame the costumed children who decide
There's too many places for a ghost or 2 to hide.
If I didn't live here, I would take one look then leave...
Maximize my chances somewhere else All Hallows Eve.
