A Stormtrooper For Halloween
by John Anealio

I had an old white shirt and a store-bought mask
and a broken water gun within my grasp
My tattered pants were lined with electrical tape
It was the greatest costume that was ever made

Now I wish I could relive that holiday

When I dressed up like a Stormtrooper for Halloween
My dad was a ghost my friend was Wolverine
And these memories will surely haunt my dreams tonight.

I march down Fleetwood Street in my black rubber boots
We went from door to door collecting our loot
I wouldn't eat the candy in my pillow case
Cause I refused to take the mask off my face


Now I'm putting on my mask again
and lacing up my boots
with my son dressed up like Anakin
in his jedi costume.
