Mailbox Opens By Itself? - Poem by Christina Sunrise

How does a mailbox open all by itself?

No, it needed a human’s help.

You opened it, then looked in,

you saw the note,

you were caught again.

So you played Sherry

with your stupid little lie,

your made up false alibi.

“All the mailbox doors

open just like M.D’s.”

“I” tried your game

this morning

it didn’t budge or

even squeak.

I could sit there all day

long opening mailboxes

till I’m blue in the face,

NO movement from my

mailbox not even a trace.

See last week you were

in my mailbox

and you took the 1st note out,

you were scared

without a doubt.

See the mailman put

mail in after that,

so this week you went

on your little rant.

You called the cops

and stated your false case,

then put a note outside my place.

Making me take the note out

before the mailman got there

the very next day,

so that I would think

the mailman took the

first note last week away.

But SEE the mail did come today,

and guess what the note did STAY.

So how did you know the note was

still in my mailbox today

and why would you care?

Because you are GUILTY

and so you dared.

You looked again—what a fool—

Like you think I’m stupid?

No, I’m on to you.

Now take your old dog

and your lying ____

and move out

while you still have

the chance.
