Instead of saying 'Trick or Treat"
Why not try a different way
To say "You'd better give me something good to eat"
Say: "You ought to give me a ransom
A little bit of candy, I demand some
If you say 'no' I will commit a prank
You won't have anybody but yourself to thank"
Or you say: ""Here's my offer, you could call it extortion
Offer me candy, just a tiny portion
If you don't I will complete a caper:
I'll cover your car in toilet paper!"
One more choice: "If you were to offer me a bribe
I wouldn't do the thing that I'm about to describe
It's something that you might call an escapade:
I'm going to soap the windows of your Escalade!"
So this year say just what you mean
And have a save and happy Halloween!
