MYSTIC POET

“PUMPKINHEAD SEASON!” a poem October 27, 2018 – Saturday

Now, Halloween – is-the-birth she had?

PUMPKINHEAD! She’s-not-really-bad,

BUT, as her birthday, comes around,

Pumpkinhead-responds!! I’m SURE-you’ve-found,

That-she’ll-take-a-match – and burn things down,

And/or-take-a-knifey-NAIL, with-a-smirky-frown,

And carve things, painfully, IN-TO YOU!!

Did-you-know-Pumpkinhead (pause) coined-the-term: BOO!?

Pumpkinhead, Heaven-forbid! – HEAVEN-FORBID!-might-take-a-gun,

And “blow-you-away,” my Wayward Son!

PUMPKINHEAD – really – does – like-School-Shootings,

Drownings – Mayhem! and Widespread Lootings!

But-MOSTLY-She-likes THE AFTERMATH,

Of-these-events! For, after her wrath,

She likes to soothe – and-to-attend wakes,

Speaking-well-of-The-Dead; much crying she makes,

For SHE’S REALLY SORRY, for DEATH-INJURY-and-DISEASE,

And The Good Lord – worships-HER – on His knees,

For THE-LORD-loves-inter-esting-and-She’s-got-a-LOT,

Of-interesting-ideas! Pumpkinhead!-What-have-you-wrought!?

🙂 – Happy Halloweeen!!
