‘The Mysterious Presence’

April 4, 2011

Debris, dust and strange emissions,
Noise in endless repetitions,
Objects moved to odd positions,
Plaster flaking from partitions;
These ongoing demolitions,
Horrible indoor conditions,
Work of ghouls or apparitions,
In the best undead traditions?
No! These are mere superstitions!
Soon we find that expeditions,
Cellar-bound spelunking missions,
Yield surprising recognitions
Of the source of these perditions –
Not a haunting: electricians.

We’ve had three of them in all day, taking up the carpet, knocking out floorboards, de- and re-plastering bits of wall and generally making the house look like it’s had quite an active poltergeist through it.
