    Tragic violins in human sinew
    screech erratic measures,

    ragged fingernails
    drag the sky.

    All Hallow's Eve tumbles in
    blindly..
    silently gasping,

    it's posture screams
    a warning,

    reminiscent of
    rolling cadavers.

    Learing grins behind
    ghoulish masks
    might give
    caramel coated
    grenades,
    sweet
    treats
    that bear blasts
    and break
    teeth,

    and
    make
    the
    tummy
    hurt.

    Is it worth
    the risk...?

    to say
    we went ahead
    with
    this
    custom...
    of cut pumpkins
    grinning....

    of witches
    riding brooms...

    and what
    in the
    Hell,
    does
    any
    of
    it

    have to do...


    with
    God's will....


    America ?


    Trick or Treat

    Treat

    or


    Trick ?

    ...chemical grenades
    and white phosphorous
    slapped into
    AK's
    with the
    short grip...

    biological clocks
    go

    tick

    but

    not
    tock...

    keep the kiddies

    off

    the
    block.




    please.





    On A Continuous Journey

    CAUSE DIS BE A PAGAN HOLIDAY!

    Off top , you dropped a serious thought to
    contemplate, rather have another commercially
    disguised pagan holiday any way!
    When it might disguise the face of the enemy.
    What the world really needs to know is that
    Halloween needs to go. I could find things better
    though, for us to teach our kids you know.
    For they don't even know what all is behind this
    Halloween thing.

    It be not about the present state of alert, it's
    power has always been inert, caution to the
    beholder, you may be the holder of Satans keys
    to the door, what for. To celebrate some dark
    custom that is no longer mainstream.
    I would not dream of inhibiting them who
    worship Wicca for it be the American way.

    But this day I say, Halloween needs to go anyway
    It is not a safe day or time or place for our children
    to play. A holiday, implies it is holy in some way
    I doubt if God would agree. If so then why all the
    disguises represent something violent or ugly?

    Not just cause the Terrorist threaten us, but because
    it is time for us to discuss, how we go from hanging
    skeltons and witches to celebrating God's birth in
    60 days! Heaven be praised, children want candy every
    day! Did you know that more liquor is sold than candy
    on Halloween! And that is when most abuser's act mean
    On Superbowl Sunday and on Halloween.
    Why? You ask Why this day does exist?
    Cause in our history something we missed.
    And dis be a pagan Holiday.
    And if that be the case then Why do we say
    God bless America, that's not the Pagan way
    they have many gods they say!
    AND DIS BE A PAGAN HOLIDAY!!!!!!!
    Sorry if I got carried away! Just a thought provoking piece!:peace:

    Gypsy,

    In full agreement. What does it have to do with God's will? What does it all mean, when we continue to celebrate a frightening tradition? Taking kids trick or treating only to take the treats to be X-rayed for harmful tricks placed to hurt them. Yeah! I second that, keep the kids of the block. This is a great piece. Thanks for sharing.

    Madd Sistahly Love :heart:
