In ancient Rome when the time came
For the dead of the house to leave
A living man would stand by the door
And spit beans into the street. It may be
That this only works for Roman ghosts
Or perhaps I use the wrong sort of beans
But my dead just shake their heads,
Mulling over who among them
Should most be blamed for me.
