A scarecrow wearing worn out clothes And hair made out of thatch Happily lives and spends his days In the farmer's pumpkin patch Keeping watch over all the pumpkins Growing big for the fall holidays Making friends of the big black crows Then shooing them all away Each year he watches the vegetables grow For jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin pie It takes a long time to get them big enough But they get there by and by In late October, the kids come by Happily pulling their Halloween pranks The poor scarecrow never has any fun And never gets a word of thanks Put away in winter and brought out in spring Looking just as he did a year ago There really isn't much variety In the life of the poor scarecrow Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© May 15, 2007 All Rights Reserved
