A child's entertaining tableaux
And so fades Halloween
Like a dawn mist
That clears under a steady sun
And put away toys
The Wal-Mart chinoiserie
And let the imps sleep
Upon their candied hoards
Nothing sinister lingers now
Save their dreams of horror
And none ever see a real spectre
Nor vampire, nor werewolf
For evil is not so simple
Only after All Hallows Eve
Comes the greater horror
When humanity again holds sway
And then do we realise
Halloween is our one day of peace
For we are the monsters
And it is good to pretend
We are not

Someone put this glove in a tree for Halloween (funny and a little ghostlike)
