I think that I shall never see a pumpkin as orange as can be.
So round and true and a stem so hard and green, a perfect Jack-O-Lantern it will make and all the children will scream.
Iâ€™ll put a candle in it to light up the night, it will flicker and glow and cause a great fright.
On Halloween Night the kids will come dressed as Dracula, Frankenstein, a Mummy in trauma and there even was scary Obama.
The Monsters came to the door and hollered their â€śtricks or treatâ€ť but not one of them could, perform a great feat.
They just open there bags, they all wanted candy, while there parents stood in the street, theyâ€™re all drinking Brandy.
And then came the big kids with their pillow cases streaming, staring at my pumpkin, with their eyes all a gleaming.
For I knew in my hart that it wouldnâ€™t be long, my perfect Jack-O-lantern, soon would be gone.
And at last, I donâ€™t think, I shall ever see, my pumpkin, smashed in the street, so completely.
