About the Poem

You can tell the poem is set in America because sweets are referred to as candy and the trick or treaters eat enough candy to give themselves stomach ache. In England, they'd eat enough sweets to make themselves sick.

Little Monsters

Little monsters in costumes
Looking for candy treats
Terrorizing the neighbours
All along the street

They prey on young or old
To satisfy their appetites
Treats are handed over
To creatures of the night

With their goody bags
Full of every candy treat
They can’t wait to get home
Before they start to eat

Then when the bags are empty
They realise their mistake
They’ve eaten so much candy
They’ve all got stomach ache
