The Pumpkin Spice Lament

from by Molly Lewis



Rest in peace, Pumpkin Spice
Another month of your company
Sure woulda been nice
But you've gone underground
And egg nog's come around again

It seems that everybody knows
That this is just the way that November goes
I think it's rather rude
Pumpkin's a Thanksgiving food

Why can't they coexist
And why can't the seasons overlap
Pumpkin peppermint and nog can be the Three Wisemen of flavors
So everybody wins, and I get an extra month to savor

Normal folks don't think twice
But the time we have together, it just won't suffice
And there is no excuse
It’s not like there’s real pumpkin juice

Why must you go away
And why doesn’t Starbucks understand
After Halloween is over I can tell your star is dimmin’
And I have to just accept that you’re the McRib, but for women

But now we’re here — What a treat
And the scarcity might be what makes you taste so sweet
But I have to face the facts
You taste like scented candle wax
