The bash is a smash,
So much laughter and banter,
Endless libation and flirtation.
Ghouls gone wild . . .
Dracula dares to juggle for muggles,
While the mummy enjoys stuffing his tummy,
Leaving Frankenstein alone to zip through a line.
Ghouls gone wild. . .
There’s Michael Myers bragging his blade is sharper than Freddy Krueger’s,
Off in a corner is Pinhead trying to hook up with the walking dead,
And here’s Chucky who’s nobody’s doll and way too ugly for the cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
Today’s Halloween, when ghouls gone wild.

[Italicized stanzas are excerpts from Prince’s song, Purple Rain]
4/21/16 — The last day of Prince’s reign
He who gave us Purple Rain
And other hits that will never wane
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
Pioneer, legend, icon, genius
He even had a name that’s a hieroglyph
As cryptic as what stole his last breath
Constant music in the making
He set the tone and style for the taking
He’s always real, no room for faking
Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
A milestone maker in many stages,
He had a soundtrack for all the ages
His harmony is stronger than any steel cages
He’s a master in rock and blues
An impact in culture and people of any hue
He’s a melody maven through and through
It’s time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
Prince and the Revolution
Prince and the N.P.G./The New Power Generation
Prince, you were always a sensation
Only want to see you
In the purple rain
