Don’t You Think

Darkness falls
leaves fall
it’s fall
It’s almost Halloween
All Hallows Eve
the language of symbols to express the inexpressible
did you pray beside a beloved’s grave
Samhain
are they liberated
Innocent kids play
it should now be free of speculation
or suspicion
It’s just dress up
Grownups need to grow up
Don’t you think
it’s time for grownups to grow up
and quit pushing an agenda
on the Innocents?
