Mary’s Ghost: A Pathetic Ballad

No, don’t mind me at all;

Just a little haunting for you.

You don’t have to cower by the wall

Or even look surprised, I know:

You heard that I would pay a call

Don’t bother to look alarmed.

You will never be in my thrall,

And there’s no need to be armed.

Weapons useless, grappling, brawls:

Do I look as if I am daunted?

While in your comfy bed you loll,

Not the least bit haunted!
