Is there anybody there?'

 

Join hands to form a circle,

There are spirits in the air,

The medium makes enquiries,

Is there anybody there?’

 

One knock for ‘Yes,’ two knocks

For ‘No,’ the table starts to

To turn, slowly rising as it does,

One knock, ‘contact confirmed.’

 

The medium slips into a trance,

Her eyes roll left and right,

Do you have a message dear,

For someone here tonight?’

 

Well no, it’s more a question,

Prompted by a spirit guide,

Who noticed something strange

About the Yes and No reply.’

 

There’s a worry in the afterlife,

That’s causing quite a scare,

I knocked to say that I was here, but

Who knocks when no one’s there?’
