Adorn the mask, hide your flesh,
This is the night, put on your dress.
Long flowing gowns of colors unlimited,
Dabbed with uncanny smears of scarlet.
A day to live as the monstrosities in the world,
Time to be one of the ghouls, terrors unfurled.
Roam about door after door, demanding candied sweets,
Maybe to appease the monster under the sheets.
Not the fabric that makes one horrifying and forlorn,
But the monster hidden underneath the layers of flesh and bone.
Halloween is a night different from the rest,
For we accept our roles as creatures, infest.
While the rest of the year we are truly human,
Masks of false pretense, veiling what is truly inhuman.
