Hating Halloween

Hating Halloween: An acrostic for October 31


How I hate Halloween:
All the attention
Lavished on dark deeds,
Leering looks in
Outdoor obliqueness –
Waiting for winter.
Even so, I’m enticed,
Eating forbidden treats
Not meant for me.

  1. I know just what you mean about Halloween. I never celebrated it, but I did eat some of the ill gotten treats. Very well said!

  2. I love Halloween and your acrostic. Halloween is a chance to get out of yourself.
