OLD JACK

Posted

Old Jack sits on the porch step

The wind all full of might

The dance of flickering candle

Seen glowing in the night

Old Jack sits on the porch step

The children come and go

Their costumes and their masks

Their names he'll never know

Old Jack sits on the porch step

His jagged teeth and smile

He tips his twisted cap

He'll be there for awhile

Old Jack sits on the porch step

Looks out upon the scene

He's waiting in the darkness

He's there on Halloween...
