Mansion Myths

The mansion lies in dilapidated ruins,

Untouched, overgrown, and unloved.

Where teens play games as humans

To see visions of ghastly apparitions

They say if you stay there overnight,

The lurking spirits come give you a fright.

And if you happen to catch a sight,

You’re destined to never see the light.

The knock-knocking on the walls,

Sounds of feet dragging the halls,

The wrenching sound of ghostly calls,

Until you’re got and your lifeless body falls.

So if in this mansion you try to sleep,

You’ll become a ghost who will weep,

And stuck inside, the mansion will keep.
