Pumpkin Patch

I’ve been tending these plants for many a day, taking good care in my own special way.

A real bumper harvest, a wonderful crop, to make sure your Halloween isn’t a flop.

I make up a tincture to add to the water, the contents are secret but don’t involve slaughter.

The best in the town, in the whole region too, grown expressly for the people like you.

I’ll gather them up and I’ll sell them quite cheap, I know some of your pockets don’t go very deep.

I’ll sell them all and still have demand, but the last four are special, obey my command.

They’ll sit there and guard me, keep intruders away, ‘cause I want to celebrate in my own special way.

I don’t want intruders, my guest list is written; anyone else by pumpkin be bitten.

I’ve played my part and supplied all your needs, and soon I’ll be planting the next lot of seeds.

My guardian pumpkins will hiss and they’ll growl, they’ll spot anyone who goes on the prowl.

So take heed of this warning, don’t ‘Trick or Treat’ call, these pumpkins have teeth and they sure can maul.

Give me a few days and they’ll settle down, to welcome all callers that come from the town.
