Is It A Ghost?
~Joel Bjorling~ 

Is it a ghost I hear
Down the basement stairs,
Creaking, rapping, 
Hooting everywhere?
It could be the washing machine
In need of repair,
But is it really 
A ghost down there?
Is it a ghost I see,
Crawling up my bedroom wall?
Its body, with thin, bony fingers,
Must be over ten feet tall!
It could be tree branches
Bending in the wind,
But you can't fool me,
The ghost is back again!
Ghosts must enjoy
A devious lark
Because they save their scary havoc
Until it is dark;
Have they nothing better to do
Than haunt my house?
It's getting too frightening
For man or mouse!
