House of the Dead

The windows have a dark blue cast outside Except for where the candle lights the stage Where the gore that flows within the dark house Evil signs the home that bears its old age Jack-o-lanterns are lit on the doorstep Trying to invite the unsuspecting Leery are many that walk past this house For the darkness seems to go engulfing The moon slashes the sky with awesome grace Lighting the dirt path for any approach The dark house looks inviting in some ways The flickering candle stays as it’s broached No matter the lure I will never go I’ll never enter the house of the dead If you listen you can hear them laughing And it won’t just be what is in your head
Russell Sivey
