The leaves are a little slower down here and not so much red or gold
But the wind is blowing strong tonight and the air is getting cold
All the children cannot sleep, for sugar has replaced their food
Another bite I could not take, my stomach lost the mood
That night I spent on many streets with Steam Punk and Harley Quinn
Till I grew tired of driving round and convinced them to pack it in
Their take was good and with heavy bags, they came back to our lair
Like pirates they began to trade, and say things, like, "that's not fair"
I stole some chocolates when they weren't looking and maybe some apple sour
Today my belly says, it was more than something and the cold fronts sapped my power
So I laid down to take a nap, but I could here November first
Candy powered little kids, my head is going to burst
Can't sleep so I will light the grill and talk to spiderman and Robin too
And I see Robin finally got himself, a normal pair of shoes

We boys are drawn like moths to a flame. They wanted to burn everything, "what about these leaves?" Lily wasn't much different when she was younger. I remember her at 4, and we had just finished eating some food I cooked over the pit. She always liked to help with that, but as I was putting some dishes in the sink, I saw her little figure out the window. I leaned and followed her with my eyes. She was gathering sticks and blowing on the embers in the pit. When the flame started up again, she clasped her little hands together and had a moment of celebration. We had warned her about playing with fire before, so when I called to her, you could see the expression change instantly. It was cute though and you could see that she felt quite accomplished. I asked her what she was doing and she told me the truth, so we stayed out and fed the fire that night.
I love this time of year, and there are the crows to kick it off. I miss hunting some, but I love to fish and this a great time for that too.
It is a slow bite today, and the cold air makes me wonder about Crappie, and where they end up in these lakes. I know where the main lake holds deep water, but I can't reach it from the shore.
