"oh my, now what do I do?
my summer job is over
and it's getting cold out here"

the scarecrow had been hanging
out in the corn and pumpkin field
four months in the weather

he did the best job he knew how
waving his arms at the blackbirds
shaking his legs at ground critters

he hung there in the Summer
thru the wind, the rain and heat
and now, Autumn is here

really a mindless summer job
but gee, he was well suited for it
his head being made of straw and burlap

no brain, no heart, no courage,
just a put together cornfield effigy
tied to a piece of wood

his seasonal job is finished
the winter winds will blow
next year he will be brand new
