Black Pumpkin

An old witch turned a pumpkin solid black She had to prepare for a horrid spell Once she’s gone forward there’s no turning back The curse would send unwary ones to hell Keeping her deal with the devil in tact What she gave for her powers she won’t tell The pumpkin glows with a burnt eerie scene Knowing that its strength will surely redeem
