1576 – Spooks in the Bed

Spooks in the Bed
Ghosts are notorous sheet-hoggers.

Very Very Very Very Haunted House

More ghosts than you could ever dream
all haunt inside our little home.
Inside the attic, sixty scream.
In walls, in halls, a hundred roam.

Two dozen hide inside my room.
In closets there are thirty more.
There’s ninety-nine that soar and zoom
above our heads, and ‘neath floor.

On every shelf, in every book
you’ll see at least three ghosts have camped.
In every cranny, every nook
are fifty more all tightly cramped.

We want to find another place,
but not because we wish to hide…
So many ghosts, so little space,
there’s no more room for us inside.
