It Ain't Fun Being
A Pumpkin Guard


My farmer placed me out here
In front of his barn
I suppose my job is guarding
These pumpkins from harm.


I had rather be out front
For passing children to admire
Just standing here guarding pumpkins
Eventually I am going to tire.


Maybe when Halloween is near
He'll move me to the front yard
I sure enough hope so because
It ain't fun being a pumpkin guard.
