Grandpa’s Ghost (limerick)

Updated on October 17, 2013

Each night grandpa’s ghost would appear

It filled me with terror and fear

What caused me to shrink

From this soulless link

Was that it would drink all my beer

      LOL! And, it would make sense that Grandpa's ghost would drink "light" beer - wouldn't want anything to weigh him down.
