VENGEANCE ON THE TEN

Ten days before All Hallows Eve he rises once again.
Goes upon his killing spree for vengeance on the ten.
A body's found each night, with a head severely bashed.
Next to a numbered pumpkin, a Jack O Lantern smashed.
He can't be tricked or treated, neither slowed nor stopped.
Each night death will be repeated, until the number drops.
"Katrina oh Katrina, my love for you shall never lesson.
Cursed night I lost that fight, my broken heart confession."
So now he rides a fortnight before All Hallows Eve,
seeking vengeance on the ten horsemen upon his ghostly steed.
