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.
