Some pumpkins need an attitude adjustment!
You now have eyes, a nose, a grin,
A light, also, that glows within;
Of Halloween, you are the star,
But a pumpkin, still, is what you are.
From a field of dozens you were chosen
Now your attitude’s too much to bear;
Since you’ve become a Jack-o-lantern
Your cut out nose stays in the air.
The others in the pumpkin patch
Were not, like you, so big and round;
Just big enough to be a pie,
Or misshaped and left upon the ground.
You made fun of all of them;
You laughed and rolled your fiery eyes,
But the last laugh will be on you,
‘Cause you’re just a pumpkin in disguise.
You’re a plump, pretentious, pompous fellow,
And someone ought to tell you
That you’re nothing but a common squash
You’re just orange...instead of yellow.

|He's definitely not a nice fellow, but an awfully good subject for your lecture to him.

|I like the way this little romp pumps up the little yellow fellow just to squash him! There is even the pithy purple patch to open your final stanza. Good job, Cynthia. Nice to see you raising your voice. I trust all is well?
