a drink with good to questionable company

many people have seen a ghost in my building
and over the years the reports are the same
it’s always a he
and he wanders the upstairs hallway
the laundry room
the band room with it’s shitty carpet

oh, the stories i bet he can tell about
the wild nights in that little room

there have been a few run ins with our
celestial friend in the bar downstairs
but drunks live in my basement
and you should never believe a drunk

if he is tall or short
thin or fat
no one has ever established thus
but everyone who has seen him
all quote the same two facts
he is always quiet
and he is always alone

it would seem that our friend
prefers the night,
though a couple of daytime sightings
have occurred

Reports also confirm that our friend
doesn’t float
he walks or just stands still
(i guess even ghosts get tired)

now i have been living here
9 long years in this building
and i’ve never seen him
i don’t believe in his kind
i guess that gives me a special power
or maybe it’s a hindrance
i don’t know
but i do know this
if i were to ever see him
i’ll quietly ask him in for a drink
and maybe to shoot the breeze
so that way he’ll know
he’s not alone

a drink with good to questionable company
