Playing With Pumpkins
Being a defender of all pumpkins
more than you would imagine
residing in strange places.
Confessing my desire to uncover their whereabouts
before any slaughter or carving begins.
Bridges by water all the better to look my dear.
Eliminate colourless pumpkins for obvious reasons.
Yet being the most magical of all plants
they can become a coach in a flash.
But when midnight strikes
once again they're confronted with harsh realities of life.
often fat, orange, rough and round creatures
carved with silly or scary expressions
and toothless grins under glowing eyes
and the occasional furry moustache attached
each perform in a frightful plight
of a vast sea of orange hiding in nearby patches
but their biggest fear is hearing,
anyone desire a cinnamon-streusel pumpkin muffin?
Turn on the oven!
Oh the wickedness!
Clear vision is the answer to solving puzzles.
and good whiskey upon rising theometers!
and in the end
"Only a knife knows what goes on in the heart of a pumpkin.
