And all throughout the streets,

All the creatures were prowling for tricks and for treats;

The Jack-o-lanterns were set on the porch with care,

In hopes the Great Pumpkin soon would be there;

The puppies were in costume down in Tompkins Square,

Dressed as monsters, and dreidels, and panda bears;

The moon all full and bright

Sent the message to all those looking for a fright;

Then all of a sudden, right before my face,

Appeared a figure whose image I couldn’t quite place;

I tried to remember, as over me he did loom,

Then I realized it must be a Banksy Costume!

More rapid than eagles his comrades arrived,

And he whistled, and shouted, and as they started to jive,

Then I heard him exclaim, as they vanished from sight,

Happy Halloween to all, and to all a good night!


Happy Halloween from us here at Birch!
