Dick Brennan was most well known for all the personalized poetry he wrote for weddings, birthdays, and other special events.  But do you remember some of his many "theme" poems as well?  This one would have been written for one of his many newsletter contributions to either Eastern Airlines at Kennedy Airport or the Commuters Club in East Rockaway, New York.  Date unknown, so as always, please let me know if you have more info on this or any poem! --Sean


We’ve come once more to the month of October,

The weirdest of months—to keep anyone sober.

What with ghosts and goblins and foggy nights,

We hear strange tales of awful sights.

Headless bodies, clanking chains,

Thunder and lightning ‘midst blinding rains.

Out late at night, avoiding the park,

Searching each shadow where it seems most dark.

But the scariest of all, when out in the street

Is encountering youngsters shouting “Trick or Treat”.
