Strong Pumpkin

On the mighty heights sits a strong pumpkin It glows greatly so deep into the night So evil it clomps down, absorbs your sins Bats fly around it looking to bring fright Skeletons walk scaring all those tonight The Jack-O-Lantern shares a heart of fear A form of compliance it demands queer There are red eyes within the holes of trees Evil splashes with every moment near The end is close; death is here if you please
