That box! That Pandora's box

Cunningly left with so few locks

Seen each and every hour

Calling out “knowledge is power!”

Oh, that burning urge to know

The secrets it could show

As my curiosity itches

And my hand slowly twitches

So I reach for the box,

Fondle the gilded lock,

And ponder what I'll find.

At last - I settle my mind.
