War On Pumpkins?

Shades of Charley Brown waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear
Our wizards in D.C. once again are spreading climate change fear
The latest is all the pumpkins appearing as Jack-O-Lanterns on Halloween
Calls for the tradition of carving pumpkins to be weaned
Not because of the heat generated by millions of candles glowing in the night
As millions of children flock into the streets enjoying the Trick or Treat rites
No the concern is that the millions of pumpkins into the trash disposed
Release tons of methane gas into the air as they decompose
Methane gas is not an air quality friend
Absent converting the pumpkins into bio fuels get ready for a new trend
The Great Pumpkin may still appear but do not be surprised
Plastic reusable  precarved pumpkins will be the Halloween prize
Another tradition to end of a family going to the pumpkin patch
Sorting through the pumpkins to find the perfect match
To then carve a Jack-O-Lantern to light up the Halloween night
As costumed ghouls and goblins are grabbing candy to later into bite
