Abu Dhabi already readied her post (in fact, it's saved onto my laptop), but it seems I'll be the first to post... unlike her, I'll be starting it off fresh here.
SOSHI POTM: Wonderous Winter Wonder Night-O-Mare
Costumes and face paints are ready
We'll all hit hard and we'll all hit steady
We aim for the candies of that of sheen
For this, my men, is our Happy Halloween
As our doors open and our bags so heavily gripped
We all nod in agreement and have our last liquor sipped
No child shall stand in our way
For we shall steal every tray
The strike of twelve awaken all of our minds
We shall take candies of all sorts of kinds!
Some Crunch, Smarties, NERDS, and Twix
Lollipops, Gumballs, Jawbreakers, and Pixie Stix!
We dash out into the open with screams of glory in the air
The cold strikes our skins, freezing us as if we were bare
Yet none of us care as all we can feel in such passion is heat
And to what surprise it is to us that we face an empty street!
No cars and no laughter
Not one we were after
Not a child, nor a dog
Just emptiness and fog
Suddenly lights struck our eyes paralyzed
This was an event none of us surmised
For surrounding all of us, of us thirty-five
T'was none other than our rivals, the Hive
They laughed as their back rows scattered towards the houses
Some dressed in Godzilla, Kirby, Jack Black, or even in blouses!
Their leader, The King Bee, screamed "Leave no candy for these children!"
He must have been such a fool, this ridiculous plan was very well ill-ridden
"My men!" I had screamed "Not one of these men shall gain a cavity tonight!"
"Take them down and destroy their lot, for tonight we shall have our fight!"
And sure enough my men hailed at my beckon and charged furiously
Not a shred of kindness would you see, only thoughts so visciously
And to every house did we race
Ones with pumpkins with so many a face
From door to door did we scream "Trick or Treat"
We were sure tonight we would have them beat
Children dashed out of their houses screaming with fun
All seeming happy except for a child who couldn't even run
Pandemonium hit this place, as nothing more than chaos appeared
Yet through all this panic there was never really anything to have feared
For in this competition of luscious sweets
And our quick patter of insanely fast feets
This was a joy to behold and to have seen
For my men and all this was Halloween
Night so dark and moons so bright
Clouds of darkness covering all sight
Flashlights and glowsticks consume all space in the air
Women screaming and nice children with candy to share
Lights dazzling through the house castles of yonder year
Of places with witches and goblins and all things to fear
A ghost here and a ghost tragically placed there
This was our Wonderous Winter Wonder Night-O-Mare
