Crowson: Something Truly Scary This Halloween

Oct 31, 2018

Kids are putting on their costumes, candy’s waiting by the door
There are tombstone decorations in the yard
Skeletons and ghosts are posed to give their friendly scare once more
But something about this Halloween is really hard

When the horrors in the headlines seem like nightmares come to life
Bigoted monsters put their fury on display
When the values of our nation get carved up by hatred’s knife
It’s frightening how America has lost its way

Tricks and treats are the order of the day
The trick is not to let their hate scare love away
Treat fear-mongering politicians to the fate they so deserve
Vote them out of office on Election Day

So here’s to Halloween, although its terrors all are just for fun
Here’s to children who enjoy a little scare
Here’s hoping by the time they’re grown our nation will have overcome
The fear and hate that now divides us everywhere

Tricks and treats are the order of the day
The trick is not to let their hate scare love away
Treat fear-mongering politicians to the fate they so deserve
Vote them out of office on Election Day – it’s tricks and treats on Election Day
