Pumpkin Doll - Poem by Justin Gildow

With a jack-o-lantern for a head
A burlap sack for a body
And candy for arms
The pumpkin doll may look small
and cute
But he packs a deadly punch

Humming a tune aloud to himself
With many weapons at his disposal
The pumpkin doll wouldn't have it any
other way

Wandering through the castle
The pumpkin doll is one in a million
The night might be evil
But the pumpkin doll waddles along
Continuing on

Taking in the sights
He waddles along
He's ok with the night
Just as long as he gets to hum a song
His favorite song

The ghosts and phantoms that roam
the castle don't scare him
As he's eerie himself
Albeit in a completely different way

Who knows how long this night will last
But the pumpkin doll could care less
Just as long as he's still in one piece
And absolutely painless
He's jolly and happy as can be
As well as full of spirit and merry
