I have a dilemma about Halloween,
with neighbors and children obsessing of death,
while worshiping zombies that breathe a cold breath,
as costumes make fright with a skeletal scene.
Their clothing and makeup reminds of a fiend,
where masks have evolved for the worse, I confess,
with death and the devil conveying distress
to places of horror where demons convene.
Does no one consider the cost and outcome,
or ever look forward, the future to see
enraptured attention devoid of remorse?
Hell-fire and damnation draw thoughts away from
things healthy and holy that spawn purity.
To honor the saints is a better choice, of course!
