Pumpkin Dead

A Poem by Fran Marie

On a dark halloween night#
there came rolling down the street
a squishy-wishy pumpkin head
it was an ugly -wuggly sight
not pretty or sweet
it's real name was punky-funky dead
 
It had a cracked-wacky skull
and a rotted-knoted nose
and one crazy eye buggin' out
in the other oogly-googaly worms crawled
and his bloody-bony teeth all crooked in a row
I dare say, a horrid pumpkin head no doubt
 
The trick and treaters stepped aside
'pon seeing such a scary-wary sight
'twas the dumpiest- pumpkin head they've e're seen
 one lil' wobbly-gobblin girl cried
a boy skeleton died of fright
oh, yeah, punky-funky caused a gory scene
 
It started to thunder and down came the rain
the pumpkin headed for the old boneyard down the road
and all the children went running their own ways
Punky-funky died and went insane
when the oogly-googaly worms turned into titter-tat-toads
 deep, deep,down in the muddy-fuddy ground he now lays

a very cool creepy piece... something you could easily tell around a campfire with a flash light and in a spooky voice... liked this alot... fav lines...It started to thunder and down came the rain
the pumpkin headed for the old boneyard down the road
and all the children went running their own ways
Punky-funky died and went insane
when the oogly-googaly worms turned into titter-tat-toads... very nice!!!
deep, deep,down in the muddy-fuddy ground he now lays

Thanks for a fun Halloween scene with the BEST wordplay for this seasons' macabre contributions to the Cafe! *smile* I love all the double-words (hyphenated) with rhyming or just fun sounding twists. We all know how YUKKY a rotting pumpkin can be, so I was feeling this as you described yours. Perfect balance between YUKKY & lighthearted (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I like how it rhymes. It seems like a poem you'd read to a child on Halloween.

All though a bit different for some reason Halloween 3 comes to mind... anyways this was really funny and most certainly a great diddy for all ages... I think kids should be reciting this as they walk down the streets collecting candy.
