October 31st, 1984


On Halloween in Eighty-Four
There came a knock on my front door
I thought it was someone from town
But out there stood a Circus Clown

It said to me, “It’s tricks or treats!”
So I gave it a bunch of eats
I said, “If you will pose for me,
I’ll take a picture for folks to see”

I took a quick snapshot of it
It only stayed a little bit
It said, “It looks like it might snow,
And I have lots more places to go!”

Some other ghosts gave me a scare
Then I sat down in my easy chair
And thought, I’m glad they call came here
And they’ll be back again next year
