Look’s like the gang is ready for trick-or-treating!

Is it Time? – by Amy Caudill

Plastic skeletons of varied size,

Pumpkins of sundry hue, with permanent artificial grins

And lights in their eyes,

Rubber bats on string and flocked ravens perching,

Tinsel cats and wired-sheeted ghosts all implore-

Is it time to come out and play?

Little monsters of every style,

Fairy princesses bedecked in their finest and pirates

Clutching fake swords,

Movie heroes and villains poised for action,

Pint-sized demons and Jedi together plead-

Is today the day?

Werewolves prowling under the moon,

Ghouls howling in the attic and goblins

Lurking under bridges,

Vampires slinking in the shadows and

Boogeymen hiding underneath the bed all beseech-

Is it Halloween yet?
