Mary waited for the trick or treaters to knock on her door.
Many packages of candy she laid on the floor.
She looked forward to Halloween every year.
Yet to venture outside she didn’t dare.
She looked out her window and got an eerie feeling.
‘Why did the ambiance look so not appealing?’
The streets were dark and dreary that night.
Not a household in the area had turned on a light.
As she turned around, her heart filled with fear.
Standing behind her were four masked men there.
She let out a shrilling scream but they did not care.
They mercilessly grabbed her and tied her to a chair.
They searched the house looking for something valuable.
Her brains started working, she prayed for a miracle.
The neighbour’s huge dog bolted through the door for candy.
Saw the men in masks, halted, and growled loudly.
What took place next was like in a horror movie.
The dog threw them to the ground in a rage of fury,
Blood splattered everywhere, the dog had no mercy.
Mary released herself and rained them with candy.
