Nonsense children's poem ever questioning child.

Why is a pump-kin called a pumpkin?
Dad cannot pump up his bike with it?
And as far as I know its not my next of kin?
Maybe, its related to a veg called a pump?
Mum said thats a silly peculiar notion?
and especially for a boy who wont eat his veg?
Please tell me why a pump-kin is called a pumpkin?
Nan & pops  told me they had no idea?
and I really so very  much want to know?
Now I really, quite honestly do not like pumpkin pie?
Grandad and Grandma said I must try it once?
Yuck, just drop it, who cares why its called a pumpkin anymore?
