Halloween Just Isn’t the Same

Enjoy a fun Halloween poem by one of Reedley High School’s local teens!

Costumes and candy corn,
That’s all I can see.
Superficial indeed,
But how do I say that politely?
Kids prance around,
Asking for treats,
With their wide grins.

So I flash them a smile,
Not wanting them to see that I disapprove.
Can’t believe that once was me.
Now I retreat to my living room couch,
And eat the big candy bar that I’ve been saving.
Flip the channels to the re-runs of Charlie Brown.

There are more kids at the door.
I guess I’ll wear a mask too.
I’ll wear it just for tonight.
