All Hallow’s Eve

On all Hallow’s Eve
they venture out
their earthy rot smell
permeating the midnight air
they walk the streets
they plunder and pillage
leaving behind screams
in their frightening wake
It’s all Hallow’s Eve
can’t you see the mistake
suddenly alone below
the old abandoned house
the spirits afoot
seem their candles flicker
as they commit nightly sins
of sacrilege and sacrifice
It’s all Hallow’s Eve
the spirits out in force
looking for new souls
recruiting the devil’s army
you stand at the gate
it creaks open wide
do you dare to look inside?
