The Raven and the Pumpkin

The raven with the sleek physique,
Popped the seed into its cheek.
From the seed a pumpkin grew.
The raven coughed it up, and flew
Up, away on broomstick sleek.

It draped itself in night’s mystique,
Searching for the ancient sign –
Golden countenance divine.
Having found this rare antique,
Was carried back within its beak.

The pumpkin, carved to match that face,
Brought living evil to that place.
Pumpkin crept without a creak,
And ate the bird before it shrieked!

So this year to protect your house,
Light a pumpkin candle…

or else!

  1. “It draped itself in night’s mystique…” Such a beautiful line.
    At first I thought it was very Edgar Allan Poe, but after reading it a couple of times, (yep, I enjoyed it that much) I realised that it was pure Al Lane, i.e wonderful and unique. 🙂
