Pumpkin King

Pumpkin King, O Pumpkin King!

Sovereign of all ghoulish things!

With the Devil’s serrated knife,

Were you butchered and given life.

“Pumpkin King, O Pumpkin King!”

The croon that all dark creatures sing.

On Halloween, you return,

Greeting Death in graves upturned.

Pumpkin King, O Pumpkin King!

To your shadow, shall I cling!

You’re the monster my heart desires,

For your darkness and eyes of fire!

Pumpkin King, O Pumpkin King!

Sovereign of all ghoulish things!

I shall love you all my days!

Forever yours shall I stay!
