Puzzle Box - Poem by Barry Middleton

I found an antique box
in a forgotten shop
no one could open it
I had to try the lock

I took it home with me
it did not cost a lot
for no one saw the use
of puzzles time forgot

I studied it a while
then put it on a shelf
I could not open it
or not all by myself

but now I know the trick
a man can't gain alone
it takes two souls to find
the path to the unknown

it does require some luck
a prayer and effort too
but two may find the key
and that's the secret clue
