To Dare or Dare Not —

Christmas morning,
And I wake up to find
A bright red box
With golden ribbons lined

Beside my bed,
And with a note attached.
I sat and read
And then my head I scratched.

The words it said:
“Open me, if you dare.”
And so I thought:
‘I guess that I don’t care

To get any
Surprises that might be
Unpleasant, or
The start of misery.’

So there it sat,
And it yet sits there still:
For I dare not,
And think
I never
Will

Mystery Box

You wake up one morning to find a beautifully wrapped package next to your bed. Attached to it is a note: “Open me, if you dare.” What’s inside the mystery box? Do you open it?
