The Pumpkin Stand
By Kari Ann Gonzalez
On Halloween, plump pumpkins were picked.
Not Gorda. Gourds were too green. Too warty. Still, Gorda longed for a home.
She cleared the cobwebs, and stood tall- even pasted triangles to become a Gord-A-Lantern. Nothing worked.
The last pumpkin was picked. And Gorda’s dreams were squashed. It couldn’t get any worse…until Witch whisked Gorda away on her broom!
Gorda knew she was destined for stew.
After a short flight,
Witch sprinkled a putrid potion.
Seasoning, Gorda sighed.
Gorda looked up to see… a tiny witch hat?
Witch said, “Now, you look just like me. Let’s go trick-or-treating!”
