Scary Night

Silent screams of starving children.
Jobless teens rob, causing fear.
Mothers mourning missing daughters.
Halloween can last all year.
 
Sickness without health insurance.
Sadness without someone near.
Drive-by shootings killing cousins.
Halloween can last all year.
 
Can’t pay the rent so now she’s homeless.
Black and blue for being queer.
A drunken driver got another.
Halloween can last all year.
 
Ghosts and goblins gather goodies,
Door to door, from there to here.
Beneath the masks we show each other,
Halloween can last all year.
