    TRICK OR TREAT!
    ________________________


    Nary a choice did I resent
    more than my steps up staircase bent.
    Had I known what fate was in store,
    I would’ve stopped short of the door
    and listened to my heart’s retort
    turn my back to oaken boards;
    neglect to knock, proceed no more.

    Alas, the wiser choice did seem
    like foreign words I could not read
    a weaker foe to curiosity!
    Thus on that door, I knocked, 
    TRICK OR TREAT!
