Halloween Surprise

Darcy Richardson

October 31, 2012

They come to the door and scream “Trick or Treat!”
Here comes a small boy as he trips on his feet.
A big red moustache and some curly hair too,
This child’s excitement, it really shines through.

The socks on his legs look familiar to me,
Who is this boy trying to be?
He unzips his coat with a bit of a gaffe.
His Dad and I both have a pretty good laugh.

I reach out with candy, he tells me “Not yet.”
He’s ripping his coat, his Dad smiles again.
He gets off his coat and he shows me a C.
He’s got Lanny McDonald’s first Flames Jersey!
