Curiosity

A house far out the country-side
Ignited a curiosity in one's mind
Abandoned but mysteriously prone
to frequent probes of unseen visitors
Tyre marks visibly awkward but in abundance
From the  gates to the house and back
But oddly enough avoiding a drive through
Where an open gate offered least resistance
But strangely no one took the route

A white car stuck in the mud for
as long as one could remember
None so brave as to venture out to see
Heard say there were four occupants
Who refused to exit and were now skeletons
Basking in the heat of summer
Shrivelled in the cold of winter
as if huddling close together for warmth
Eerie and frightening, no one dared
to take a peek but rather letting
the many mysterious visitors to keep
their secret with a discovery morbid
or otherwise, no one cared to question!
