White House Ghosts

In 1942 Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands Was staying at the White House When there was a knock on her door Opening it she saw Lincoln's ghost Wearing his traditional top hat And she passed out from fright When Winston Churchill visited the White House in WWII He emerged from his bathroom, naked with a cigar in hand To see the spirit of Lincoln sitting in front of the fireplace in his room He said, “Good evening, Mr. President. You seem to have me at a disadvantage” The White House has a number of ghosts With most Presidents, their staff and family Having these experiences too. © Paul Warren Poetry
