The Box

A box arrived this morning
Its reason was unspoken
It was signed and sent with deadly seal
The box said Do Not Open

It stood there in the hallway
And arrested my attention
I paced the floor and pondered why
The box said Do Not Open

And still I wondered,
Will temptation get the best of me again?

It was just the very thing I wasn't
Wishin' to be ownin'
A package sent to Waseley Hills
The box said Do Not Open

Seven lonely days went by
I wasn't really copin'
It soon consumed my every thought -
The box said Do Not Open

And still I wondered,
Will temptation get the best of me again?

Frozen there in terror, I
Could hardly have been hopin'
Through an omen of my comin' doom,
The box said Do Not Open

An image of repulsion
I saw the premonition
It filled my frightened mind and still,
The box said Do Not Open

And still I wondered,
Will temptation get the best of me again?

I couldn't stand the torture
And approached the thing in question
I ripped away the seal
The box, it lay there open

And there I was, a sorry man
All doubled up and chokin'
With bleedin' hands and withered nails,
The box, it lay there open

And it looks like
Temptation got the best of me again
