A Gasssstly Horror

Limerick with a twist Contest Winner 

I'm a ghost newly learning my art,
naughtily stalking a tasty young tart ...
Well, I sneaked up her skirt,
thinking what could it hurt--
'til the shock of it all made her


Writing Prompt
Write a limerick. But instead of being bawdy or funny, make it spooky. It can have humour but should be predominantly spooky or even horror.
The limerick is a closed-form poem. It consists of five lines; the first four set up the joke, and the final line delivers the punch line. Rhyming scheme is not important with stressed and unstressed syllables here or feet just as long as the rhyme sounds good and is the right number of lines.
