Halloween

(JD Valerio)
Halloween, the perfect holiday for a metaphors about temptation and two sides to the self.
Halloween
Halloween strange things seen, ghosts may walk , skeletons talk on Halloween
I’m tossed and torn my heart is sore a demon and angel tug aware
And who am I? this mask I wear or something darker under there?
Bloody Mary, Sleepy Hallow – the vampires pour me a cup to swallow
And sexy witches sing to me at night, I become a mummy to hide my light
Cuz I’m a jack-o-lantern with two carved eyes – blinded by our appetite

Halloween strange things seen, ghosts may walk , skeletons talk on Halloween
I creep along the flower bed . . . near the graves of lives long dead
And they whisper to me from a spooky shade – we understand your masquerade
Silver bullets, holy water, cannot save the sons and daughters
Greedy children, trick or treat, give us something good to eat
Cuz we are jack-o-lanterns with two carved eyes – blinded by our appetite
(Cuz I’m a jack-o-lantern with two carved eyes- blinded by my appetite)
