Halloween Moon

by Thomas Truax

Full Moon Music Club exclusive


Full Moon Surprise #48


The Halloween moon is a beacon
Through mist beams its Ghostly glow
The woods whisper an invitation
A celebration, a show

Granny bids me farewell
With a bit of advice
From inside of her shell
She says: Don’t think twice

If your knees start to weaken
And you can’t find your tongue
The Halloween moon is a beacon
The Halloween moon is a beacon

I float down the front steps
in my ghost sheet
I hover across the blue lawn
Towards a mystery sweet

I have a bucket for candy
But know that it may return just as empty
It’s not trick or treat that I’m after
It’s just the spirits and joy

I don’t remember preparing
Did I cut the holes for these eyes?
No humans but me to be scaring
Though these trees are full of dark spies

Jack-o-lantern grin
Say howdy do, dear
Cotton cobweb spin
Raise your Witches brew here.

Jack-o-lantern grin
Say howdy do, dear
Cotton cobweb spin
Raise your Witches brew here.

I’m glad you let me in
To your ghostly din
Please spin me again
Im such a privileged human

Dark laughter resounds
All around
And spins me around
And around

And I’m starting to think
This ain’t treat
This is trick
And I begin to feel sick

And they’ve taken my sheet
And I look at my feet
And I’m bones
Only bones
Crazy bones
All alone
Now I’m losing my footing
And I can’t find my tongue

Now I’ve tripped in these woods
My torch is broken
Scattered all my worldly goods
And my map app ain’t workin

“If your knees start to weaken”

Hey, that’s granny’s voice creakin!
On the wind it is speakin
Halloween moon is a beacon x2

So the moon guides me home
In my glow-in-the-dark bones
And Buries me under
a plastic tomb stone

I should know not to go trick-or-treating alone
