GrandPa’s Funeral

Clipart of a grave. The words RIP are on the tombstone

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 9 December 2020, ingenious.

Before we’d laid coffin, we’d checked,
He had asked us a phone line connect,
I sat straight with a bang,
When the phone later rang,
Would we like to accept call collect?

  1. Nice one, a little dark history and some great humour. nice work! The last time I did a ghost hunt a lady in the group had her phone ring. It was called by another group member only his phone was sitting in the unoccupied room with all our gear. So it seems spirits really can use technology.
