If you're not familiar with this story, it is a cumulative tale about a haunted house. It goes like this:
|Here is the hand that knocked on the door|
|that startled the spider who dropped to the floor|
|that shook up the bat who swooped through the air|
|and jolted the owl who said "Who-Who's There?"|
|that spooked the mummy who ran with a shriek|
|rattling the bones who moved with a creak|
who woke up the monster
who stomped on huge feet,
threw open the door and heard
"TRICK OR TREAT"
inside a house that is haunted.
