Never to early

a time to
remember the dead
God save the Queen.

Witches on broomsticks
Wizards with toads
eyes on the beauties that
walk down dark roads.

I think a hot toddy
for this stately body
a toffee apple?
well maybe,
I’ll wait and see
if a spell’s cast on me
before I take my pick
of the tricks and treats
in store,
