Children are excited
For this special time to come
Where they collects lots of sweets
And eat until they're numb

Chocolate, chews and candy
And many many more
That's what kids love to eat
That's what Halloween is for

The time that's in October
Where they sky turns all dark
Throw your candy out the house
As the kids are now the sharks

Watch them have a feast
As they eat them one by one
As the chocolate disappears
Then suddenly they're gone

The fact that children love the sweets
And sugar and the lot
Makes me question everything
Is that all they've got?

    Halloween is an interesting time full of fun for many. I love seeing families wandering around all in fancy dress doing their trick or treating and how some people go to great lengths to decorate their houses.

    Its a time for families to create costumes together, play traditional Halloween games and make decorations. For neighbours and strangers to exchange pleasantries in the street and comment on each others costumes and an evening of ghost stories etc.

    The choice is trick or treat so I usually get a choice of things like plastic spiders, balloons and vampire teeth as well as sweets. I think its a wonderful time (anything that gets families out and about together instead of sitting at home in front of their mobile phones or computers is good in my mind) but yes I agree too many sweets can be bad.

    Dani I totally love this

    I love the subject matter and the questions it raises.

    At first glance it seems quite an innocent and light hearted poem. However it has deeper undertones.

    Love ya

    Obviously I know, not every country celebrates Halloween, so terribly sorry if you are one of them ^-^
