The Haunted House

Happening now
Somewhere in your town
Something horrific
Is about to go down
Your friends talk about it
In careful hushed tones
Telling their stories
Hearing screams and moans
You try not to look
As you pass by
But you can’t seem to
Avert your eye
You try to ignore it
When you make it home
But thoughts you should go in
Won’t leave you alone
You text your friend
Asking what you should do
She replies with,
“Nah, it’s $18 bucks and really wasn’t that scary. Why don’t you just come over and we could watch some Netflix or something?”
