Walking Sierra Madre…The Social Side 

by Deanne Davis 

This guy has obviously been waiting 29 years to see These creatures rule the darkness, 
As long as Mom and Dad are handy. 
the Dodgers in the World Series! The last time they 
won was in 1988 when Orel Hershiser led the team 

to victory. Ticket prices are through the roof, but 
this guy is ready to pay, no matter what it costs! 

All Hallows Eve...Be Afraid...Be Very Afraid! 

All Hallows Eve.... is coming,
A deadly.... dreadly night.....
When ghouls and ghosts and creepies,
And other awful blights,
Are free to roam and wander, 
Anywhere they might. 

Creating scary terror everywhere they can,
And scream inducing, faint-producing, 
hair-raising, bone-melting, 
What’s that right there behind me...
Quivery, shivery...Fright!! 

They creep out of their crypts and graves,
These creatures of the night.
They haunt the roads and byways,
Run rampant through the park.
They hide between the bushes,
And everywhere it’s dark. 

All Hallows Eve.... is coming,
A deadly.... dreadly night.....
When ghouls and ghosts and creepies,
And other awful blights,
Are free to roam and wander, 
Anywhere they might. 

Up and down the streets of town,
They race in search of plunder,
These ghouls and ghosts and monsters,
About three feet tall or under! 
They shriek for treats and threaten tricks,
But are satisfied with candy. 

All Hallows Eve.... is coming,
A deadly.....dreadly night....
With ghouls and ghosts and monsters,
And other awful sights,
Dancing through the shadows,
Into circles of street lights. 

Beware...take care, 
Who knows what’s waiting,
Just around the bend. 
Could be Jack the Ripper, come to call again,
Or Dracula or Frankenstein, the undead walk 

Maybe just stay safe inside...and turn off that 
porch light.
