Quoth the Pumpkin
by Steve Mitchell
Hey, now! What’s all this doodle Tom-foolery?
Who’s ever heard of a Jack O’ Lantern with no nose?
That’s just silly talk.
I’ve certainly never heard of any such thing.
Oh, stop it. Of course I don’t have ears.
You know what I mean.
You think you’re all so cool with your thumbs and your, your, haircuts, and your pants.
Why, I have half a mind to come over there and give you a piece of my, well, you know . . . my mind.
I would, too. But, it seems I have no feet.
And I have no cab fare.
I have no mind.
