I was frozen
In 1620;
Defrosted in 2020.

Alive again!

I enter a room,
Press a "button" on the wall
And from the ceiling
Little fires glow.

A piano?
Music
Emanating from a box!
What's this?
People
Lilliputians,
Singing to me
From inside.
A roaring monster
Gobbles up dust
From the carpet;
Snakes
Sprout from the woodwork.
The sound of a chime;
I tread to the door.

No!
Voices shout
From the wall!
I glide toward a large cupboard,
Pull the handle.
The door
Moves with my hand.

I compel myself
To peek inside.
It's cold,
I'm scared.

Help!

Please freeze me again

Forever.
