The future we hope

The Future

By Scott Bailey 2017

I ruminate on my future
I have grown weary
My skills and senses
A plough driven too long

It is filled with
For miles around
The land knows no dark
The question might be asked
Why it was built
Were there anyone around
To ask it

A collection of short stories concerning ghosts. Some are traditional ghost stories in the tradition of M.R. James and Edgar Allan Poe. Other are not. Some scare, some are fun.
