It was a kinda dark and sorta moody night...



It was a kinda dark and sorta moody night
The moon danced in between the clouds
Shredding them with light
In the forest, wind whipped through the trees
'round frozen stumps to bite the highest canopies
revealing momentarily the face of fright

But please do not become perturbed
The world goes on and I'll explain
If you don't mind a little bit of pain
You see, my friends, things aren't 
always what they seem
This witch is only queen on Halloween.

Boo!

Well, were there any ghosts and goblins at your door on Halloween?

The mysterious night sky with a moon is a nice prelude to your narrative. Talking of Halloween, the masks of Trump and Clinton were used for cosplaying in Japan, but I hope the real horror won’t come soon next Tuesday. Riding on a plane with a pilot who doesn’t know how to control a plane is a real horror.
