Satanic Serenades

A cold familiar chill cascades from the West

The rictus of the Jack 'O' Lantern glows through the night

Sweet dreams of archetypal splendor greets smiles and fright

As children laugh and play with Trick or Treat delight

'Neath the pall of the Grim One's sight...

The skeletal trees athrust to the sky

Leaves blown by the wind of the whispering breeze

The House there stands vacant, or so it seems

Then who's are the eyes that peer through the beams?

Devil Moon nigh, peers from on high

Flooding the earth with blue-crimson light

Vampires and Werewolves arise for a "bite"

Nightmares alive in glory and might!

Black candles a-shimmer in the beautious gloom

The shadows take shape in the depths of your room

The demons, the devils, the ghouls and the ghosts

The Gates are cast open, we welcome the hosts

Our brothers and sisters from Hellish Abodes

By thunder and lightning, the ravens have flown...

The Sabbath bell calls through black haunted halls

Baphomet's smile in daemonic guile

By Satan, Lucifer descends Leviathan to Belial

Looming spechtrous by words of Spell

Lingering shades, All Hallow's Eve

By what was spoken, shall soon be reaped

In pleasure, in passion, in feral grace

Halloween's wonders, come take thy place!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In homage to All Hallow's Eve, and the phantoms called up thereon. While the masses reach into their dark subconscious on a visceral level this amateur night, Satanists live the reality of the "spirit" all year 'round.
