Seven O’clock Bells From Hell

October 23, 2007
By Mike Tanowitz, New City, NY

As the stairs creek
Water also leaks
In the house
With the murdered spouse
They say the house is haunted
And it certainly is unwanted
Even on a sunny day
People like to stay away

Day after day when it strikes seven o’clock
Most clocks keep going tic tock
But the one in the house lets out a shriek
The worst part is this shriek isn’t weak
The wife that was shot
Left a blot
Of red on the wall
From when she did fall

The murderer stays inside
Thinking of his bride
That he shot
At seven o’clock
