A rather spooky coincidence this week. Two prompts about ghosts on the same day!
Is it a message from the Beyond?
THURSDAY THINK TANK
GHOSTEST WITH THE LEASTEST
I think ghosts are memes!
That's the way they strike me.
I don't believe in a single one
And there are others like me.
Somebody aeons ago
Thought up all that baloney
And 'believers' down the ages
Have latched-on to the phoney.
Maybe somebody was downcast,
Maybe newly bereaved;
He imagined he 'saw' the departed
And his story was believed.
'I've seen one too!' cried the masses,
'In the middle of the night!
Oooooh! It was terribly creepy!
It gave me such a fright!'
And, bit by bit, the meme caught-on,
Part-serious and part-fun,
And soon the idea of haunting
Was believed by everyone.
I've never seen a poltergeist,
I've never heard chains rattling,
I've never heard a spooky voice
With its other-worldly prattling.
So I'll continue to disbelieve............
Oooooh! One might come and get me!
Until it does I wont allow
The idea to upset me!
asks for a 'ghostly limerick'
One day, when I opened my post,
I found someone had sent me a ghost!
It looked me in the eye
Then it uttered a cry!
And flew off to some place on the coast.
Though not of the computer age,
The art it has inspired
Here is depicted
See the mind
Trying to break through,
To make sense,
See the meaningless strands
And feathers and wings.
Hear the screech!
