Autumn Is Here


Terror, gasps, screams, cries,
Hope dashed, evil overcoming,
Darkness descending
Into a ancient room.
Haunted hoodlums
Tearing apart the creations
Of so many years of effort.
Politicians insulting,
Lying, and stretching the truth,
Pleading for your money
For the next election,
As if it is an emergency.
So many things
Competing for our attention.
Pumpkins lined up
Along the road.
School getting into a rhythm.
Holidays peeking
Around the corner.
Christmas will be here
Before you know it,
And IS here,
Depending upon
Where you shop!
