The Deadly Box
It’s kind of cramped in here
I guess it wouldn’t be a bad spot
for a game of Hide and Seek
...a short game
But I can’t stretch my legs
My head is here between my knees
my elbow is jabbed into my leg
Hey, this box is very UNCOMFORTABLE
I don’t really want to be in here for too long
I mean, how am I supposed to eat?
Take in new nourishment?
Or go to the bathroom!?
You know, getting rid of all that stuff
that has been processed and
has no more growth value
There certainly is no room for
GROWING in here!
Not in any direction!
I can’t even change my position,
turn on the other side
or even lift my head
from between my knees
And I definitely don’t want anyone
to see me this way!
I’m not in a very flattering position
My better sides don’t come to light
not in this place
I’m over due for a shower
Oh how nice that would be...
a warm shower
to take away all the dirt and sweat,
which is a part of life,
whether one is in a box or not,
Ah, to feel fresh and clean again
It’s beginning to smell!
What with no bathroom,
no fresh air...
Yes, air (breathing)
I’m getting rather short of air
I’m afraid I can’t get enough to breath
(gasping for breath)
I’m running out of...
don’t go away!
I can’t breath!
Don’t leave me here to....
LET ME OUT OF THIS BOX!!
“You have heard that the law of Moses says, “Do not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.” But I say, if you are angry with someone, you are subject to judgement! If you put someone in a box and label it “idiot,” you are in danger of being (tried for murder). And if you label someone “fool,” you are in danger of facing the ultimate judgement yourself”
