Backed up against a loud ruckus
replete with expletives from an unwise bupkis,
ordinary Joes were preferring pumpkins
uncarved, being made ready, before the uproar.
harried by the minor mishap, hearing a big roar
attention lost to the crowd's crescendo made my ears sore
hubbub causing tension to rise, what a surprise...
accepting the trophy for the best pumpkin pies!
