The Witch’s Kitchen
by Connie Colon
Chop its head with a fatal gash!
Grab the guts, it’s time to mash
Take out every slimy seed
scrape it clean and then proceed
Dice meat from the big orange fruit
Sorry, fresh out – no Eye of Newt
Spices and eggs, violently mixed
Pumpkins cut, carved, and betwixt
A sweet pinch of this, a strange bit of that
Mixed together in my pointy black hat
Bewitched butter, smashed into slime
Cast your spells now–it’s the right time
Haunted heaps of ghostly white flour
for creepy crust at the midnight hour
Into the oven, deep, dark, and hot
Stabbed in the middle – done or not?
Put that fork down, you drooling ghoul
We wait until it’s corpse-like cool
Plunge a huge knife deeply in…STOP!!!
I can’t eat my pumpkin pie…
without whipped cream on top!
At a book signing that was part of a concert for an animal rescue charity. Little River Band's lead singer, Wayne Nelson, bought a copy of PRINCIPAL KIDD for his grandchildren!
