Like Dagmar said, this reminds me of Halloween. Kids dressed up as pirates and ghosts, and prince/princesses... all carving pumpkins at their party. I loved how you used all the "P" words from the contest.
I like how this poem has an ironic twisted reality to it. I can see how things relate to each other in the mind of a child and innocence is the school of thought that imagination belongs too... Sometimes reality is more beautiful that way.
