Inspired by Annabel Sheila’s Delightful Poem:

Gordy the Gourd




“Men are like pumpkins.

It seems like all the good ones are either taken,

Or they’ve had everything scraped out of their heads.”






My spouse constantly likes to tease me

That I look more and more like our pets

But I bet that she’ll soon change her mind

Since she hasn’t met our latest adoptee yet


I just found him at a small roadside fruit stand

He was terribly sad looking and so very all alone

There was something special about this pumpkin

I somehow knew that he yearned for a good home


And, he must be an extremely intuitive pumpkin

Because he soon spotted the mist in my eyes

And before I knew what was even happening

Gobs of tiny orange pumpkin seeds he did cry


As I stood there feeling sorry for this orphan

I soon heard the young female clerk proclaim

“You two definitely belong together, Mister;

You should buy this pumpkin, right away!”


Before very long at all, my new pal and I

Were heading down the road in my SUV

He finally looked very content and happy

Snuggled in the passenger seat next to me


As we headed home, it dawned on me

I would name my new pet ‘Toothless’

And, he was definitely all smiles now

Knowing that not all men are ruthless


What an extremely marvelous feeling

Bringing yet another street urchin home

Toothless will never again have to worry

This orphan will never again have to roam


And this should finally prove to my wife

That I don’t look like all of our pets

For I am pretty darn confident

That I still have a few teeth left



I hope you can find it in your heart,

To adopt a homeless pumpkin, too;

I bet there’s a very special one waiting,

At a little roadside fruit stand, just for you.

We just adopted a watermelon that was a little past its prime, but I ate it anyway, seeds and all. ;-)

At first when I read the heading, I thought you were going to talk about the toothless animal rights laws, but then you got funny on me, which produced major hickups and laughter unexpected. I hope the princess likes the new addition to the animal farm, I mean vegie patch, bless ya!

A charming piece of imagination that allows the reader to fantasize outside the box and picture other such imaginings that are common when we're young, and sadly disappear as we play at growing up. Well done.

Now this was priceless! You are just fantastic
in your writing! Could it be you have a heart
for all creatures and veggies too?

I have to get on a roll myself and write, but
this is a real keeper!

Love and Light
