Halloween Parade

on the eve of all hallows
under a cloud filled sky
creatures of the night begin to rise
the creak of coffin lids
battle with the woo woo woo
of ghosts warming up for a special haunting time
vampires floss their fangs
press their capes
zombies sew on body parts
rehearse a synchronised swaying march
for it is the night of the parade
into hell and back again
the undead mingle with tormented souls
allowed reprieve for one night only
by dawn they will return to the lonely
torments of the underworld
for now they frolic and play
until the break of all saints day
