Populous orchards bending down

With a heavy sweet burden

Of the serpent’s fruit

Red and golden

Enticing heaven’s own cherubins

Innocent eyes sparkling

Through devil’s glorious painted visage

Feasts and candies galore

Tricked into a treat.

A spooky moon

Travels across the sky

Shines on puny skeletal frames

Tricking stray mongrels

For a treat off roadside vats.
