Ouija Board

It was supposed to be harmless fun
She wanted to see what it was- a story spun,
To beffudle the gullible, an old wives' tale?
Or maybe there was more to it, a face beyond the veil?
So, she fished out the Ouija Board, covered with dust.
She was told it was evil: 'Stay away, you must'.
But, without adventure, what is life?
So she ignored warnings that the board brings strife.
It gave her answers, one by one.
Revealed secrets, past mistakes she'd done.
A cold shiver ran down her spine,
This was seriously getting out of line.
Out of the house she ran,
Abandoned the board near a dustpan.
Walked back to her room to gulp down water,
She didn't hear the chuckle, silent laughter.
Forget the madness, she said, get back working!
And then she froze:
The board was still there, almost smirking.
