Tricks and Treats

Tricks and Treats

Don’t be frightened by the monsters
in television ads promising prosperity
and predicting pandemonium.

Don’t be frightened by the beggars
in your email, requesting treats
to prevent someone else’s tricks.

Don’t be frightened by politics,
be angry that money decides elections
instead of We the People.


Election Day is three weeks and a day away and I’m very angry. I’ve been encouraging my fellow citizens to vote and now it’s time. I plan to vote early, in person, next Monday. Have you already mailed in your ballot? What’s your plan to vote?

    Yeah…watch the stock market as the climate changes even as ugly pumpkin speaks. Good poem. I’ll never look at pumpkin the same.

    We must vote for the change we wish to see! So much so that the Trumpkin cannot affect the outcome even if he tried.
