Happy Halloween, warriors! A tribute to the fearlessness of the warrior on the supposedly scariest day of the year. Within the realm of fear, we have no conquerors or equals.


The ghosts appear with eerie glow
Their see-through tattered garments flow
They moan and howl in attempt to scare

But warrior just cocks his head
And gives a wink to the undead
And doesn’t shiver, tremble or beware

A corpse emerges from its grave
And limps towards the warrior brave
It gurgles tortured wails of dead lament

But as it nears the warrior
The corpse’s own fear starts to stir
As it sees warrior’s survived torment

The corpse screams and it runs away
As pack of werewolves enter fray
They snarl and growl ‘till there’s eye contact

They see within the warrior’s eyes
The hellish forge which did baptize
The warrior’s nerve and so they all retract

A colony of bats swoop low
And into vampires they grow
And surround the lone warrior and hiss

And as they all do sink their fangs
It’s the vampires who feel the pangs
As they stare into warrior’s abyss

They scream and recoil with fright
Infected by the warrior’s might
His venom of strength, grace, will and resolve

Makes all the vampires begin
To burn and crack and trip and spin
As they all crumble to dust and dissolve

The other ghouls surround as the
Warrior smiles and asks, “Who’ll be
The next to try to prey upon my fear?”

The demons, witches, spooks and wraiths
All cower and show little faith
This spookless warrior they all revere

They all step back and clear a path
In fear of the warrior’s wrath
“That’s Goddamn right,” the warrior does growl

He slowly walks past all of those
Who glow or bleed or decompose
Or levitate or do smell very foul

They see that he is not impressed
He snarls and beats upon his chest
Which causes all these spooks to jump with dread

“That’s Goddamn right, within the realm
Of fear it’s ME who’s at the helm!”
He warns to all the retreating undead

    It’s perspective. Much of Halloween is child’s play. The real world is where we are challenged.
