Flame flickers in the eyes of the pumpkin

Grin stretches wide over darkness within

Squatting at the doors of all the houses

Standing sentinel on All Hallow’s Eve

Flickering orbs scan the night for unwanted visits

Ghosts and spirits and devilish things

Jack-o-lantern stretches mouth wide

Devouring the evil that wanders abroad

Jack-o-lantern guards hearth and home

Eats the wicked that seek to roam
