Ghosts in the Home – Written Sunday 23rd October 1994 (Aged 19)

Ghosts in the Home

i told them to leave me alone
ghosts in my home
having meetings after dark
moving things about
i heard the sideboard ornaments
as they tumbled and fell
i hear their voices
as they whisper then yell
there are always choices
things we never know
paths to take, ways to go
but wait till they groan
then you will know,
you have got ghosts in the home

James Garratt – Sunday 23rd October 1994
