Pumpkin Corn Man

Pumpkin Corn Man

A Poem by Marie Harrison

A poem about a monster roaming throughout the heartland.





















Pumpkin Corn Man

Out of the dark shadows of

crusted bloody gore

an evil force was born

Back when there was war.


He has the

Face of a pumpkin,

But his stooped body

is crooked and short,

his teeth are yellow

and brown pieces

Of dried Indian corn.


His eyes glow of

Bright green emeralds,

But his nose is a

Butting bugle horn.


He lives out in the

Miller’s shed and

His clothes

Are all covered

With soot

And torn.


He roams free

Across the Flat midlands

Until the early morn.

Pulling the hairy

Legs of coyotes and wild

Boars until their limbs

 Are blood crusted and torn.


Beware of the

Prankster evil ways of the

jeering Pumpkin Corn Man,

He’ll crack your

Skull as fast as he can,

Leaving you a scorned

And broken man.

I love the season and the feel of autumn.. just the chill at night awakens childhood haunts.. Your words give life to fear and give us a good reason to stay inside after dark. Awesome creation...
