Thoughts On the Morning After Halloween - a November First Poem/a Halloween poem

Thoughts On the Morning After Halloween
by
Greg Pincus

March always comes in like a fierce, hungry lion,
Roaring so loud that I quake.
And now I remember
That every November
Comes in like a huge stomach ache.


I hope you had a wonderful Halloween evening and that you didn't eat too much candy. I was very, very good on the eating front... though we ran out of candy on the delivering end! Eeps!

Today is not only November 1st, but it's also Poetry Friday, and you can find the roundup over at TeacherDance. Check it out, I say to you!

Your poem brings a smile this early post Halloween morning. My stomach survived more than my usual number of treats. It is a little more flabby today, though, after my splurge.

So if March roars, does November groan? Love it, Greg.

So funny and rings true in my household with my two girls. Already there has been too much candy. =)

Someone posted on my FB page that they talked their children into donating most of it to a nearby shelter, neat idea! But great to read your response to Halloween. Some even say similar things after Thanksgiving. Thanks!
