Got Ghosts?A Poem by Revolutionary
I suppose if you must live with a ghost,
you should treat him as a humble host.
Grant him a room at the top of the stairs,
so he can attend to his ghostly affairs.
Always invite him when the family gathers,
to reminisce about life's little pleasures.
When there is dancing you can assume,
that he has the lightest feet in the room.
That strong gust of wind is him chasing after,
the children at play,and bursting with laughter.
I suppose if a ghost is haunting your house,
he knows the home better than any mouse.
He probably built it with his own hands,
or maybe he's buried right here where it stands.
Could be he lost his true love in this place,
and this house holds visions of her lovely face.
He might not know where he should go,
and is not aware that he is a lost soul.
I suppose if your ghost insists he will stay,
the house will always be haunted this way,
you must forgive him for the occasional fright,
and don't be alarmed by bumps in the night.
Whenever you have some time to spare,
talk to your ghost and tell him you care.
Maybe he will explain his fear,
of the place souls go when they disappear.
Whatever you do make him feel at home,
for a haunted house is never alone.
