The rumours, scared not but
to move into the very house, that claimed
so many a victim.
Do not go up the stairs, they all had warned,
only to be fallen upon his deaf ears.
Unfazed and determined he moved ahead,
only to jump down like all others
to his death.
The stairwell since ages was cursed,
Whoever climbed became
but a corpse!
