Box


Once a girl was put in a box and asked to stay there
It was small, and sturdy, and she stayed
When the girl was hungry
They fed her
When the girl was ill
They nursed her
When the girl learned to speak
They gave her a book of what she could say
When the girl learned what was proper
They brought others for the girl to play with
When the girl learned her feelings
They gave her a list of which she should keep
When it was time for the girl to leave the box
She didn't know how
So they left her there
To let her die
Once a girl was put in a box and asked to stay there
She was small, and frail, and she's still there
