A blustery late October chilly night

Bustling leaves and a time of silly fright

 

Houses draped with stringy webbing

Jack o lanterns filled with candles ebbing

 

Howls and screams from all about

Hair raising experiences without a doubt

 

Overhead shines a full moon sky

Waiting intently is the whippet on the sly

 

Creepy creatures with ghastly faces

Children go hiding in their secret places

 

Siblings getting ready for Halloween

Trick or treating and hoaxes in between

 

Young ones eager and dressed to thrill

Lots of costumes clever and far too real

 

Boys and girls garbed as eerie ghosts

Vying for sweets and tons of friendly hosts

 

Little goblins go knocking on every door

Hoping for delectable eats and maybe more

 

Lurking about is the stealthy whippet

Watchful of every handout and every snippet

 

All gathering tasty treats need to be aware

Its almost time for a ghoulish whippet scare

 

An end of reaping is now approaching

The whippet is now ready for some hasty poaching

 

The moment calls for a cagey whippet prank

Snagging bags of goodies while zestfully swank

 

Now hoarding the freebies and grinning ear to ear

The whippet gloats gracefully and wears a wily sneer

 

While high jinks are made for this candy bandit

This night is all about mischief and the dandy whippet
