The Cave Dweller and His Pumpkin

"Look, look, my dearest! Look at the sky!" Said the tall cave dweller With a sparkling smile in his eye "Do you see the that vibrant rainbow?" He asked the little pumpkin he held in his arms "We must chase it! We must go!" The pumpkin pouted and lay still on his chest He pleaded at her feet, looked into her eyes The pumpkin replied, "Blehh! I just want to rest!" "Please, dearest pumpkin? We really must see!" He put on his shoes and stood near the door "Let's go on an adventure, just you and me," The pumpkin and cave dweller, hand in hand, began their long trek To find the arc of colors that rest in the sky They grew tired so they lay on the grass, her head on his neck They awoke and planned out the rest of their day "We will eat, walk, then sleep, In exactly that way," The two ate, walked, and slept in exactly that order And the journey continued in that manner Until they reached the dark forest's border "Shall we stop?" Questioned the pumpkin With her shoulders dropped "Never! We can't give up now!" The cave dweller exclaimed "We will capture that rainbow, somehow!" So they finished their dinner of kool-aid and melon And they resumed their travel And as they walked they encountered a felon "Give me your money!" The criminal shouted "But don't try nothin' funny!" The couple forked over all that they had But the pumpkin smiled and said, "We didn't need it much anyway, so it wasn't that bad," The pumpkin and cave dweller just kept on a happy face As they hacked through the thick forest And soon found their place "Look there! It's the rainbow! We made it my love!" Yelled the cave dweller excitedly As they climbed the tall tree to the rainbow above "You taste it first, since this was your plan!" The pumpkin broke off a piece of that rainbow And placed it in the cave dweller's hand He rose the bright colored chunk to his lips He chewed on that rainbow and looked thoughtful Until he yelled "BLEHH!" and spit out rainbow chips "This is repulsive! Horrid! Bad!" He nearly fell out of that tree From getting so mad But the pumpkin thought for a moment then said "We had quite a fun adventure, through good and through bad It all happened for a reason, so don't lose your head!" So the cave dweller reached over to the pumpkin for a kiss And they smiled and they began the trip home And decided that disgusting rainbow was worth all of this
