Curiosity Killed The Cat - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

Curiosity killed the cat
Is a phrase that determines
A turn here, or there
Or behind me now.
A packaged sneakedly
Opened, before being
Wrapped back carefully. No
Secrets hidden here-
Blessed no, mothers
Too eager to speak out -

A gift that prods the
Struggling child in
Lessons whispered out.
Catch it here, or there
Or seek it under the
Mouse’s click.
Two preambles
forward, is enough
To do the trick.
