About the Poem

Are trick or treaters innocent revellers enjoying a little Halloween fun (and sacks full of sweets) or juvenile extortionists who terrorise their neighbourhood? Paul clearly thinks the latter.

23, Those Little Darlings

Those little darlings
With their angelic eyes
Look harmless enough
But beneath their disguise

They’re nothing but thugs
With pure evil intent
These spawn of Satan
Are not heaven sent

These foul blackguards
Going about their sport
They say “Trick or treat”
As they happily extort

They squirt fake blood
On my front door
They egg my new car
I can’t take any more

I sit counting the minutes
Am I the only one?
Who just can’t wait
Till Halloween is done
