Do you remember that time

When it felt like bugs

Were crawling up your spine?

Or what about when

You felt that tingling

All over your skin?

In the quiet of the night

You heard a bump and a thump

Then you felt those goosebumps?

Perhaps it's time to rethink ghosts --

Maybe life in the After

Is more diverse than we suppose.

If we could take a closer look

At the entities that do spook --

If we could inspect and dissect,

Would we detect spooky insects?

Before you roll your eyes and say "Hush!"

Consider what might happen to that bug

That just got stepped on and crushed.

What if every creepy crawler

That gets squashed and squished

Like people continues to exist?

Then imagine all that crawls

On the other side --

Every bug and parasite

That has ever lived then died.

Might this be the deal

Behind the feelings you feel --

Goosebumps and goose pimples

When fear gives your flesh a chill?

It could be a ghost-bug crawling on you.

But don't worry --

Bugs don't say "BOO!"
