A Tense Christmas

The Ghost of Christmas - Past Perfect Progressive

Midnight. Awoken by a ghost.
I thought I must be raving.
But then he went and showed me
How badly I'd been behaving.

The Ghost of Christmas - Present Perfect

The next night, a ghost again:
with a much more recent scene
More evidence piling up of how
unpleasant I have been.

The Ghost of Christmas - Future Unreal Conditional

A final late night ghostly vision.
But this one lacked the pain and strife
I saw if I could be a kinder man,
I would create a better life.
