Many people dressed up last night for Halloween. I have also seen pictures of pets dressed in a similar fashion. However Baldock likes to be different and the landlords of the Engine pub have certainly proved the point by dressing up their pub as if they’re expecting a Zombie attack! When I first saw the results I thought it was just another case of refurbishment, however looking closely it is extremely clever and should be applauded…
Coming from the station,
On a warm Friday afternoon,
Unusual for the end of October.
Has Spring sprung too soon?
Walking down the station approach,
I realize with dread,
This is the night of Halloween,
The night of living dead!
I look at my fellow Rush-Hourers,
Sweating as they run,
How many of them are Zombies,
For trick or treating fun?
I reach the Engine public house,
I’m ready for a drink,
It’s boarded up for a Zombie attack,
My heart begins to sink!
Then suddenly I’m pulled inside,
Thank the Lord I’m safe,
“What can I get for you?”
From a welcoming face!
I look out through the boards,
At the Zombies heading home,
And thank heavens for the humour,
That the Engine pub has shown!
The Baldock Bard Gold Star is an occasional award when somebody or an organisation does something outstanding in their field and deserves commendation.
