Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

You See!

Beyond The Shadows

The Little Green Box

Where did the little green box come from?
What does the little green box hold?

Does the little green box hold a precious stone?
Does the little green box hold a treasure map of old.
Does the little green box hold a shiny bar of gold?
Does the little green box hold a bomb ready to blow?

Is the contents of that little green box the devil’s curse?  
Who will open the little green box first?

"You open it!"
"I’m not openin’ it!"
"You open it!"

Let Pandora open it!"

And out of the gates of hell it came,
and there’s no way we can ever put it back

Hope is all we have left in the end.

Jackie R. Kays
