MIDNIGHT  GHOSTS


IT WAS A RAINY, DRIZZLEY, OCTOBER NIGHT
AND WINDY AS COULD BE,
BARE BRANCHES SCRATCHING ON THE ROOF,
IT SCARED MY CAT AND ME
 

LIGHTENING FLASHING EVERY WHERE,
A TENSION IN THE AIR
A CRACK OF THUNDER-- OH, SO NEAR
IT FILLED US BOTH WITH FEAR

THE LIGHTS WENT OUT, IT WAS SO DARK                                    
IT MADE IT HARD TO SEE,        
 BUT THERE IT WAS, AT THE WINDOW
AN EYE STARRING IN AT ME..

I PUT THE BLANKET OVER MY HEAD
I DIDN'T WANT TO SEE,
A BEAM OF LIGHT FLASHED AROUND THE ROOM
SOMETHING WAS LOOKING FOR ME.

I HOPED IT WOULD GO AWAY, AND THEN
I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAY,
"I'M THE EDISON MAN, TO FIX THE LIGHTS,
IS ANYONE HERE TODAY?"

AFTER THAT, ME AND MY CAT,
WILL NEVER STAY ALONE--I MEAN,
WE'LL ALWAYS MAKE SURE SOMEBODY'S HERE
WHEN IT'S SO CLOSE TO SPOOKY HALLOWEEN.
