You’ve listened to stories of Hallows Eve
a night of scares and sweets
The story you haven’t heard
(some may think it’s quite absurd)
is of a portal between living and dead,
now let that thought fill your heads.
Twas a tale of a malevolent time
in the middle of a season with no reason
when spirits of the dead rose again
conducting their terrible plans.
They wanted world domination!
Quickly fear spread around the planet
the demons would have their way!
But if not for one day,
and the stand of one man
this would have been so.
He put forth a proposal
that goes something like this:
"If you leave us alone,
we will give you a throne,
one that exists through all of time
a night when you are thought of as gods
and can do your otherworldly things."
The haunted beings agreed
and left our world in peace.
This is why each year we place cobwebs all around,
put skulls down on the ground
and celebrate the coming of these beings
who emerge and do their mysterious things
and after their deeds are done,
just before the clock strikes one,
the demons return to their sepulchral world
This tale you have heard,
is truly not absurd
it was the birth of Halloween!
