I don't want to make a habit of posting poems, but this one, written in 1978, is also a kiddies' one in tune with Halloween...

Poem MidnightMake haste thy flight
The Lord of Night

Has claimed the hour
From yonder tower

For Mother Earth
Has given birth

To foulest night
So in your plight

Do venture yonder
Where Devils ponder

To suck thy brains
And leave remains

To show to all
What does befall

On Foolish Folk
Who do provoke

The Beasts of Dark
To leave their mark

(Poem, Midnight 1978, Up to Bridge 40)

    Good stuff Martin. The kiddies you haunted with those words are now in their 50’s, hopefully not scared or scarred for life!
