The White Pumpkin

Thank you, Ma’am, for the pumpkin. I am not distressed in the least. Though it’s not of my preference, It’ll suffice for a Halloween feast. Mother Nature could have mixed up her seeds. That could explain why the color is bland. One might think Jack Frost didn’t finish his work, Or, Autumn is making a political stand. I am so glad you came with this pumpkin. Come on in Ma’am, and stay for awhile. No, I don’t mind it isn’t bright orange, Though it isn’t the most popular style. Please, have a seat as good company should, And quit the uncertainties filling your mind. Don’t doubt my plan for sweet pumpkin pie, As giving me this ugly, white pumpkin was kind.
