In darkened room,

looms death and gloom,

hovering overhead.

I feel a shudder, then a twitch,

as I lay upon my bed.


The night before,

behind closed door,

around our table sat.

A few of us, some poor, some rich,

and our favourite Ouija mat.


Time’s begun.

Let’s have some fun.

Reach loved ones we have yearned.

‘Round the table without a hitch,

as we move glasses upturned.


Look up there!

Long golden hair.

My mum in hologram.

Wearing gown, black as pitch;

she’s here? Oh no, God damn.


It took not long.

Visions so strong.

Is this real or a trap?

I laughed so hard I got the stitch;

All codswallop and crap!
