One Halloween Night

I was sitting around my room one night
When all of a sudden I saw a dreadful sight
Right before me covered all in white
Was a ghostly figure who gave me a terrible fright

I froze on the spot in a horrible state
And nervously pondered my uncertain fate
As the ghost whirled about the room
He shrieked and cussed an unearthly tune

I didn’t move or speak out of fear
Fearing my end was imminently near
And then at last the demon darted
Through an open window and departed

Dressed all in white he rose up in the sky
Where the moonlight meets the witch’s eye
And then he screamed out a cackling cry
Tonight’s the night you all shall die
