APED: "the moaning house"

June 29th, 2009 (06:23 pm)

The Moaning House lies past the hill.
You can go and look your fill.
I know you, so I know you will.
But don't. Go. In.

The Moaning House is very small.
It barely seems a house at all.
It isn't wide, it isn't tall.
But don't. Go. In.

The Moaning House is painted black.
It overlooks the railway track.
Trains go by but don't come back.
So don't. Go. In.

The Moaning House has one small door,
and one small rug on one small floor,
get closer and you'll see some more.
But don't. Go. In.

The Moaning House is very near.
Listen to it whisper, dear:
"I'm so harmless. Now, come here."
But don't. Go. In.

The Moaning House will haunt your dreams.
Dark things dangle from its beams.
Listen, and you'll hear the screams.
But don't. Go. In.
