Ode IV a Mellowcreme Pumpkin

The election's less than 100 hours away
I found out they fired the lady who cleans my gym today
She's been there 10 years
They only gave her two weeks severance pay

A month ago I was at the store
That I would find my sweet pumpkins I was sure
But they only had the big bags
Which cost a dollar more

In this down economy
Where even the air seems to come with a fee
The only mellowcreme pumpkins I've had to eat this year
Were those I got for free

Their taste was still sweet
But I would have spent my hard-earned cash on this treat
If only Brachs had sold regular size bags
Sigggghhh...when it comes to sugary pumpkins, the man, he has me beat
