'What A Terrific Halloween Poem! '

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

A madness affects their sensibilities.
And within them the light of a good spirit dies.
Attempts have been made and tried to reach them.
But time, unfortunately, is not on their side.

A poison sweet drips from their teeth.
Their eyes have been hollowed in a clouded gaze.
Movements made are stunted.
A haunting grunt heard will amaze.

And these are the ones selected to lead.
All others have been chased.
As policies followed allows a rage.
While a normalcy has been silenced...
For an addiction to satisfy those crazed,
And living in mazes with assorted staring gazes.
Fixed and locked.
For days and days upon days.

'What a terrific Halloween poem!
You took my breath away,
It was 'that' fascinating.
Thank you.
Thank you very much! '

That's a description that depicts scenes,
In my neighborhood on a regular basis.
I'm just giving you an idea what it's like living here.

People come from around the world to observe this.
Believing it to be an elaborate costume party.
And celebrated throughout the entire town.
Now 'that' is fascination...
To me!

I don't get it.
And no...
I'm not the caretaker!
I'm just going to get something to eat from the store,
That's all.

That's where I was headed before you stopped me.
And, you're welcome.
Enjoy your stay.
