A Walk in the Dark

Poem - New Beginning

Everyone knows that when somebody dies

They go to Heaven or Hell for the rest of their lives.

But if someone dies on a holiday,

They go to that world and that’s where they stay.

Sure, you may say this is all just a dream,

But this is how Jack Skellington became the Pumpkin King.

How Cupid and the Easter Bunny bring holidays to the world,

How Santa brings Christmas to every good boy and girl.

Though Jack’s story is my favorite, you don’t want to hear.

His is the saddest and most frightful, I fear.

What?! You want to hear the story now?

If you’ll fall asleep? Don’t ask me how.

All right, child, sit down, no need to fuss.

I’ll tell you the story… if I must.

But be forewarned, this story may cause a fright

Of how Jack Skellington died on Halloween night.
