SPICY TONIC PUMPKINS

by John Yeo

How to keep your sculptural creativity in train

When you are hollowing out a pumpkin head

By sharpening up the Halloween creativity train.

~

The Jack-o’-lantern needs help to maintain,

With a nip of spicy tonic pumpkin beverage 

Helping to keep your sculptural creativity in train.

~

Spicy pumpkin tonic has gained universal fame

To sharpen up the mind with a keen cutting edge.

A spicy concoction to stimulate the creative brain.

~

 Taken with or without gin, if you usually abstain,

Your carving will fill passing witches with dread

By sharpening up the Halloween creativity brain.

~

A smooth cinnamon tonic with pumpkin in refrain

and a spicy bouquet infusing a tasty herbal bed

Is a delicious concoction to stimulate the brain.

~

Spicy tonic pumpkins will always be hard to explain 

When carving the Jack-o’-lantern’s head,

How to keep your sculptural creativity in train

By sharpening up the Halloween creativity brain.
