Samhaim to Halloween Poem

The Alice Cooper poem got Halloween week off to a rocking start, but then the dreaded lurgy did strike, and knocked poor Marc Latham out until Halloween itself. So, not much of a Halloween week, but it did inspire this poem to finish off the festivities.  It comments on the way the pagan festival celebrating the dead has been demonised and cheapened by modern religious culture, but it’s all good fun!

Samhaim to Halloween

Samhain ideas were flying around my mind
but then the spirits decided to play
with the meanest mischief
they could display

burn and bite, twist the fright

lay down mortal
tis our annual festival
time to fall upon Earth once more
Halloween is code for evil and devil
