This Is Halloween

As a babe of nine, an astonished child
learned her cousin's favorite show
was not a princess story or something mild,
but "The Nightmare Before Christmas," and, lo!

it proved her theory - her relative was,
without doubt, a most curious female -
liked Fantasia, Alice, Wizard of Oz,
the Headless Horseman, and other dark tales.

Now the babe has grown, understands the case,
that her cousin was precocious, not strange;
twisted, creepy, she has learned to embrace,
her tastes have evolved, she enjoys the change.

So though the first two are from a Christmas thing,
enjoy these songs perfect for Halloween.

This Is Halloween.

Jack's Lament.

Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Happy Haunting, y'all.
