Time to Trick or Treat

My brother yelled with boyish glee,

That I should quickly come and see.

The costume that he’d picked to wear,

With a painted face and dirty hair.

I laughed at his zombie face.

It just seemed so out of place.

This happy boy was now a ghoul,

And he thought that was super cool.

Life-like blood dripped on his cheek,

Making me just a little weak.

I told him that he looked just great,

But, for me, he’d have to wait.

My costume is almost done,

Then we can go and have fun.

With a zombie growl, he left the room.

I heard the door slam with a boom.

I check my clothes with great care,

And try to calm my crazy hair.

My vampire costume now complete.

It is time to trick or treat.
