The Children's Night

The Children’s Night

On the darkest October night
When the goblins hoot and howl
Little ones delight in fright
Their mascot is the owl

Holly is the Queen of Hearts
Christopher is a cat
Chase carries a bag of body parts
And wears a pirates hat

Their mission is extortion
Candy they’ll take from you
If you double their portion
They’ll play no trick on you

Keep your light on clear past eight
And watch apparitions in the night
Don’t bother to close the gate
Just watch them with delight
