Knock, knock on the door.
The BEKs are back for more.
The sun is gone and the moon is high.
With pale skin and darkened eyes
these kids are here to terrorize.
The legend is real and the fact is true
that they only want to bring harm to you.
Their origin’s unclear
and they don’t care.
Their mission is to cause you undeniable fear.
They’ll take you away to a place unknown,
never to return, you’ll forever be gone.
So if you’re ever alone and these dreaded children appear,
deny them an invite to prevent unwanted fright
so that you’ll live to see another night.
And with these final words, may you be protected always with love and light.
(Poem by Sheila Renee Parker)
