ANOTHER NIGHT OF FRIGHT
The witching hours’ over, as midnight draws near,
We sigh with relief for there was nothing to fear.
Witches and goblins, fairies and gnomes,
Gathered their candy and now have gone home.
Sugar and goodies race through their veins,
Night races on like a fast rolling train.
Mom and Dad wonder when peace will be found,
As Junior and sister finally settle down.
Tomorrow will dawn with the kids still awake,
Grumbling to Mom about another toothache.
She’ll gulp down her coffee and head out the door,
Their dentist loves boats and now buys one more.
Packing the decorations carefully away,
Mom and Dad wonder when childhood will fade.
One glance in the mirror reflect a sad sight,
They haven’t escaped another night of fright.
