All Hallows Eve Participants


Participants in a memoriam masked
In gaiety the celebrants basked
Unknowingly outwitted
To the darkness committed

In gaiety the celebrants basked
Participants though no one ever had asked
To the darkness committed
By the costumes outfitted

Participants though no one ever had asked
Whose funeral procession filed past
By the costumes outfitted
They are never acquitted

Whose funeral procession filed past?
Participants in the unholiest of Pasch
They are never acquitted
From the blackness emitted

Participants in the unholiest of Pasch
In a celebration to duty they are tasked
From the blackness emitted
No light can be transmitted

In a celebration to duty they are tasked
Unknowingly outwitted
No light can be transmitted
Participants in a memoriam masked.

This is really great Robert. But there is no break between the quartains. It makes it very difficult to read. It has an excellent theme soul brother.
