Call Me Temple

It's not easy being a ghost in today's world. My ghost friend Hippocrates had it easy. When he passed on, he could come and go as he pleased. Plague in Europe? He was there. Pestilence in Egypt? Off he went. Leprosy in Africa? No problem. He was there making sure someone was paying attention. Medicine is a household word because of him. But not nowadays. I have to follow the rules. Apparently the afterlife was a free for-all. Ghosts were granting favors to their buds and things got really crazy. So they had to lay down the law. Ghost laws.
