Perfect Pumpkin

 
 
hen I was a kid I tried my best.
But when it came to Art I couldn't pass the test.
My Valentines were droopy
My Easter bunnies flopped
My pumpkins looked like poopy
My turkey tales were chopped!
So I asked my teacher for advice (Trick or Treat!)
And he said to me (Give us something good to eat!) 

here's no such thing as a Perfect Pumpkin.
Never use a compass for its shape!

You might just think that imperfect pumpkins ruin the effect.
That's a mistake.

How do you think you'd feel if you were made with rulers????
Loudly I think you'd squeeel, like some unruly Middle Schoolers!

There's no such thing as a Perfect Pumpkin.
Not to worry if you twist an eye!

Just twist that mouth in a wicked grin and

Save the compass for your Perfect Pumpkin Pie!
