Gobble-uns

An' little Orphant Annie says, when the blaze is blue,
An' the lamp-wick sputters, an' the wind goes woo-oo!
An' you hear the crickets quit, an' the moon is gray,
An' the lightnin'-bugs in dew is all squenched away,--
You better mind yer parunts, an' yer teachurs fond an' dear,
An' churish them 'at loves you, an' dry the orphant's tear,
An' he'p the pore an' needy ones 'at clusters all about,
Er the Gobble-uns 'll git you
Ef you
Don't
Watch
Out!
-James Whitcomb Riley, Little Orphant Annie

My favorite! Great photo... You know I creeped up the stairs of James' childhood home in INdiana and saw the layout that inspired the poem--and where Annie sat when she spun her witches tales to scare the children! Really, really neat.

As Sophia would say in her special Halloween voice, "Ooh, ha, ha!".
