Japanese (Halloween) Garden?

Culprit creeping in the night - over fence & out of site

Into the garden of vegetable delight - and there he'd bite

Half today - half tomorrow - both causing sorrow

Raccoon? possum? rat? - beware - You are in for a scare!

Big eyes in the dark, cans & rattling beads - aiming at the one who feeds

Scare crows? - no! - but they do scare me

Who is this I live with?- it's hard to believe - 

Lets's run little critters she's got more up her sleeve!
