I'm scared of ghosties, scared of ghouls,
I won't go out tonight.
I'll hide under my blankets,
and tremble there in fright.
I'm not a silly little kid
who's nightmares make him squeal.
I'm an educated Englishman
who knows that ghosts are real!

I've spent a lot of time with ghosts
(but not at Halloween).
I've seen them, heard them, felt them,
and in their homes I've been.
I brought them into our world,
to visit for a while.
I've made them welcome with their friends,
to laugh and joke and smile.

I've also seen some others
who weren't so very nice.
I've helped to send them on their way
and offered folks advice,
on how to avoid contact with the ones
who are obscene.
So take advice from one who knows,

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

An educated Englishman
I just love the way it sounds, and no other nationality could make it work with the same alliterative meaning. Happy Halloween, Ivor!

Why ?

Scared to death of thingies
that go bang day or night
They make me tremble badly
then run to dad in fright
It's only pyrotechnics
a word I dont understand
Or why people want to spoil
this green and pleasant land

Happy (Shih Tzu)
