Jonson's Ghost

The inn had gone to waste: I’d sold it off in haste.
Awaking in the gloom, as orbs lit up the room,
I recognised the ghost of Jonson, the old host.
I said, ‘I thought you’d come’ - and poured myself a rum.
He shouted, ‘Hey, you louse, how dare you sell MY house!’

    The thought of you meeting up with this house's old ghost made me chuckle. I'm sure there are many ghosts inhabiting the old homes and I wouldn't put it past them to complain when their homes are sold. If this is an entry for Deb's contest, it should be a winner! I received your email but couldn't open the attachment :( My computer does not always do what it's supposted to do. Love, Carolyn

    Hey thanks for the little lesson. I have discovered that many Soupers know more literary characters than I have ever heard about or remember from my old college days! As for this one , I really like the cleverness of it. Great comeback by that ghostie!!
