Mr Hoolihan Regrets

A free ghost story for Hallowe'en then.

Mr Hoolihan Regrets
Michael S. Collins

“Will the witness stand and confess his truth to God?”

“That’s unfair, yer honour. Prejudiced I might say.”

“The witness must explain himself.”

“Well for one thing, I can’t stand, as I don’t have any legs. I can only hover like this. Second, I’ve been dead for nigh on a hundred years, and I’ve never met God yet. It sort of puts a damper on the whole belief bit, when you know he’s hiding from you.”
