America's Pumpkin Shortage-For Ted - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Tough on Cinderella,
tough on Hallowe'en..

Think of them like politics -
hollowed out
with a face imposed;

only the poor
live the value.

    Too bad that bulbous squash doesn't change to something else at midnight (tho it will eventually transform into a stinking, sticky mess. Like politics?) . (Report) Reply
