No one heard the tap on the door due the clap of thunder that's been rumbling round
Look! the postman's left a parcel on the doorstep! I wonder what it can be?
What's that noise! It's coming from the box......
" Row row row ..the ..boat.." a sweet young voice trembles " gently..down..the stream .." the voice sounds tearful !
"Whose singing ? " a gruff voice asks
" Me "
" Oh " the gruff voice continues " I thought I was alone in here!"
" No don't you remember ! When he pushed me back in the box I fell on you" says the voice softly " and
then he put tape on and we could not get out!" the voice begins trembling tearfully "..and..and..then you said not to worry you'd look after me."
" Did I ? " the gruff voice questions " Then of course I will if that's what I said " he confirms firmly.
All goes quiet for a while then " I wonder where we are? we have been in here a long time !"
" Whose that? " asks the gruff voice again
" It's me" sighs the trembly young voice
" Oh " the gruff voice seems to pause in thought
" Are you...Lonely? " asks the gruff voice.....
All is silent for a moment, then the voice trembles.. s..sob " Yes.."........
