Batman, Candy Apples and Tooth Decay

by Timothy r   Oct 25, 2006

Thirty years have quickly passed
Remembering my favorite Halloween
The sign of the bat proudly worn
Surely a sight to be seen

Collecting treasures at every door
My bag straining with girth in tow
Choco-cups dancing in my head
The ones filled with marshmallow

One last stop along the way
Holding out the sack for my treat
Two thuds smashed all my goods
Nothing but bits and pieces left to eat

A lonely stroll back to the batcave
Swearing revenge for a dastardly act
The old broad with the candy apples
Who had no teeth but a frightening laugh

Three months later find me in a special chair
Sitting still as a good boy should
Two cavities for all my troubles
Freaking candy apples tasted too good.

    I loved this poem alot you portrayed it so nicely. I really caught the halloween view into my mind. It's sad because over here in Australia you don't actually see the whole halloween thing with kids running around the streets and pumpkins ect =[ so thankyou for portraying this into my mind. It sounds beautiful. ~Mel

    Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for me. You captured elements of its allure quite well. And I enjoyed the funny ending...but didn't you mean "thugs" and not thuds?
