Ghost in the Night
Creeping silently down the hall
Slithering across each and every wall
Looking for my victim of the night
Needing to get him in my sight
Sent here by the devil himself
To fail at this, I’ll be expelled
Lurching outside his chamber door
Restlessly waiting evermore
For the perfect time to strike
Just to scare him, for one more night
