Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth-Toast

Rating: 5.0
Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth-Toast
Bought an old castle complete with a ghost,
But someone or other forgot to declare
To Colonel Fazak that the spectre was there.

On the very first evening, while waiting to dine,
The Colonel was taking a fine sherry wine,
When the ghost, with a furious flash and a flare,
Shot out of the chimney and shivered, 'Beware!'
Colonel Fazackerley put down his glass

the whole point of this is that fazack knew that he was an actual ghost but being scared won't scare it away so he pretended that the ghost was fake. You can tell because instead of dropping the wine glass he stopped to put it down. By pretending he is not scared the ghost disappeared because he couldn't scare fazack. I think a spectre is this kind of supernatural stick
