“Halloween’s Here” – A Halloween Poem by Adam Lazarus

Ghost beneath Good JuJu logo

Halloween’s here! I always forget.
I still haven’t picked out my costume yet.
I’m looking last minute, and may be mistaken,
But all the good costumes seem to be taken.

I want a costume that’s one of a kind.
Costumes like those are the hardest to find.
Something that won’t cost a great deal of money.

Something creative for Halloween night.

Cowboys are corny. Vampires suck.
I can’t find a costume! I’m having no luck.
Werewolves are worn out. Soldiers are sour.
It’s getting close to the Halloween hour!

I hate wearing makeup. I don’t want a mask.
Picking a costume is such a hard task.
What should I go as? What should I be?
I need something different. A costume that’s “me”!

I just can’t decide from the millions to choose.
So maybe I’ll lay here and just take a snooze.
That’s it! I got it! A sheet on my head!
I may look like a ghost, but I’m not…
