Sharing Violet’s take on the prompt –
they used to keep them here you know
the criminally insane
locked behind these very doors
thorazine coursing through their veins.
the ones that perished here, it’s said
were denied admittance to the next plane
so they walk these halls at each full moon
-much to their disdain.
they’ve been spotted of a midnight clear
feeding on the slain
at banquet tables rich with blood
which flows like cheap champagne.
so tread lightly here, if at all you must
-tho’ better to refrain
for inside these haunted halls they dwell
the ghouls of society’s bane.
This is my offering for Eugenia at the Brew-N-Spew Cafe who has requested something haunted this week.
