THE NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN EATER

NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN
EATER

        News flash!

If you’ve carved a
pumpkin
For Halloween night,
Cut eyes, nose and
mouth
Then put it in sight
        Well,
Police have advised
Old Jack’s on the
prowl,
Powerful, stalking,
With temper most
foul
       Warning!
He’ll climb your
porch steps
With slobbering chin
Take up your pumpkin
His mouth stuff it
in
        So?
Vegetarian
This creature from
hell?
No! Carnivorous,
Jack
Eats dogs, cats as
well
        Alert!
If you should see
Jack –
He looks like a
troll,
Fat, short and ugly
Who swallows things
whole –
        Gulp!
Lock doors and
windows
Then turn off the
lights
Hide kids, so tender
He’s extra hungry
tonight

    Daver, what were you talking about the "layout" of the Soup. I have not noticed much difference in layout. How was your Halloween too?

    This is funny, but a little bit scary too. Perfect for Halloween! I will sure to be on the lookout for Jack.
