X's and Y'scomes down to the forty-sixth
I've got oaken leaves on the ashen strips
and they can't tell by looking in my eyes
there's nothing wrong with a simple life
based on anything else in the first forty five
but that's not what they want to hear me say
we could chat here for hours
about Halo or flowers
and there's no shame in liking them both
but at some point you'd ask me
to answer the question
so you could tell me which was wrong
I retreat to a world
made of crystal and pearl
with the beautiful boys
and the beautiful girls
so that I can be friends
with whoever I want
make a life for myself
based on what's in my thoughts
and can cry
at the near-perfect world
where the people are nice
and the morals are closer
to black and to white
it's a mess– pretty, though
and nature and harmony are king
but on earth I'm content
to hold ashes of oak
and of juniper
and hope that no one will ask
and hope that in October
the sixth, the forty-sixth
won't become a crude joke
about X's and Y's

They call their children back to bed, but fears will not yet leave:
For creatures of the night abound on this All Hallow's Eve.
Though normally a ghost will know the ev'ning is a trial,
And all will find it hard to keep their form and wits and guile-
The spirit world is closer than the others would believe,
And spirits have no hindrances on this All Hallow's Eve.
The streets were now deserted in the old Tao Village Square,
Except a single Merchant who was Trick-or-Treating there.
Lack of determination was this Delibird's pet peeve;
He knew that he would fill his sack on this All Hallow's Eve.
He'd hit each house in
