This night so dark...

Did you see me smiling through the dark?
Did you hear my gasp?
My slurp of port?
As we tell our tales of ghosts and ghouls
this night so dark
barely lit by moon
at all

The fire crackles through the night
We share our stories made of fright
holding hands to hearts, eyes open wide
we laugh out loud
and try to hide
our fear
sitting here (so still)

We scuff in dirt
and melt marshmallows
pour stiff drinks
toast spuds in coals
Adding logs
and poking sparks
into our campfire

Our humanity is shared
in our scared presence
Our fallibility is aired
in our sublime essence
Our community is built
in our mutual confess-ance
of ghost stories round the campfire…

oh no, now I’ve got to pee…
