The box

It’s just a little box
But oh the power of the thing
Invading our alone time
Distracting from family
Coming between lovers
Destroying one’s privacy
By its huge, enormous presence.

It’s just a little box
But oh the might of its magic
Connecting distant friends
Sharing missed life events
Sending messages of love
Capturing miraculous memories
Into its tiny, little places.

It’s just a little box
But oh the great possibilities
Of yin and yang both conceivable
Control though attributed to it
Lies within the user’s hands
Of good and evil, disturbance or not
Does not rely on this simple little box.
