Black Box

The black box dark, cold and lonely,
unending pit of dread.
oh so dreadful!
none shall escape,
none have escaped!
but one: a twelve year old boy
of which you would have thought
suffered enough already, with having
almost died twice,
which he had survived.
and so, so very fortunate to have
escaped unlike one or two others.
having all that damage on him he had
come out in good health
and an animal, too.
