“There was something in the basement . . .”

There was something in the basement . . .

A girl cowered in her bed at night and listened

To a mournfully somber wail that echoed

Through the floor of her room, imprisoned.

A phantom’s moan, a grim horrid sound

Risen between floorboards like a dreadful bane.

Then too was the scratching, an insistent rasp

Of claws on cement, of something in pain.
