Haunted Houses

Written by: Angelica Grier

Haunted houses loom on every corner from the hood to the burbs 
Causing uproar among those who wish to live peacefully 
Interrupting the lives on the path of the straight and narrow 
Filling them with sadness and despair 
Dark rooms breed secrets in the shadows, closets full of skeletons 
Entire houses are infested with demons lurking in the halls 
Phantoms chase out innocence in broad daylight 
Void of all morals, humility and faith 
Lacking compassion drenched in evil deeds 
Houses built of foundations of deceit wobble and shake 
Until they collapse into dusty heaps 
Once beautiful homes are now rundown shacks 
Though some may still stand 
They all have fallen from grace
