The Parcel

This morning, as day was dawning,

The parcel was delivered.

I was excited, I was delighted,

My whole body quivered.


I was amazed, I was dazed,

I was shocked inside.

I’d been waiting, anticipating,

But a little petrified.


Anxious and worried, agitated and flurried,

Would it be all I desire?

I tore it apart, and it broke my heart –

This wasn’t anything to admire!
