1. See the Jack-o-Lanterns

 

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

As they're being carved by

The joyful faces of

Children everywhere

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

As they are completed,

Being paraded down the steps

As a Halloween trophy

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns'

Jagged smiles

Aimed at you

As you stroll past

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

Line the streets; they are

On the porches of

Every house in the city

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

At night as a candle

Compels their features to

Glow in the darkness

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

On Halloween evening

Sitting on the porch, waiting

To greet anxious trick-or-treaters

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

As Halloween passes

Left alone on the doorstep

Their purpose has moved on

 

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

As they rot to nothing,

As they are thrown away,

As they are soon forgotten

 

Just wait until next year,

When Halloween comes back around, and you'll

See the Jack-o-Lanterns

Lined up once more
