Haunted House

They say the house has eyes,
which isn’t a sur­prise,
as any eight year old could tell you.

They say a base­ball hit too hard,
al­ways ends up in that yard,
and I’ve surely lost a few.

I once dared my friend Billy,
who thought I was silly
and didn’t have a clue,

to go ring the bell,
and then come back and tell
if all the tales were true.

When he re­turned
un­hurt and un­burned
right then I learned
that
some­times

it’s not the house that is haunted
but you.
