Ball Room Ghost


it was the oddest feeling
listening to those violins play
the sound floated around the room
in a quite peculiar way
all the pretty people in gowns 
waltzed around the ball room
wearing only the most skeptical of frowns
that showed black and white
dull and gray
a courtesy 
a bow
all dancing in slow motion to the tunes
none a grin
none a smile
acutely aware of the rooms misdoings
ignoring as they must 
the howl of the ball room ghost
which was amongst them
from the very start of the evening
let the reception be held.... 
at the head stones!
