he should have been in school

today is monday, halloween-costume
it’s 9 a.m.and
i’ve just seen
an eerie scary
creepy ghoul…
he should have
been in school.
he made demands
i didn’t meet
i didn’t have a
trick or treat
cuz every other
year before
no one came
up to my door…
no matter how elaborate
my decorations grew
they never crossed
the street to me
it was as if
they knew
what this young
man did not surmise…
i’ll serve him later
with french fries
and pumpkin soup i’m making
after he’s done baking
