'Head' Of The Household

Mother carved a pumpkin head Boy, how it filled me with dread. Laughing, "it looks so real I said, It could be taken from the dead." I thought she'd smile, but instead I saw her flush, her face went red. I asked "where is father, still in bed ?" It was then that mother fled.
