The mysterious Door

There was a closed door.

But people wanted more

Than they could see.


Once the duke said, ‘I implore

You to finally open that hapless door.’

No one dared from the assembly.


‘Got to see what we can score!

We want more than our lore,

We want never – ending glee!’


Then the key was found, so small.

‘Does it match the big keyhole?

Let us try and see!’


Squeaked the hinge as people roared,

‘Now it’s opened, that door,

And who did it? – we!


Now let’s see what we’ve come for.

Oh, some will have to crawl

Under our feet!’


Then the light from behind the door

Dazzles muzzles as they grow

And turn profoundly green.


Greedy trolls, now they should know

What that ghastly punishment is for!

Nothing – you all mean


Without your soul,

Without that door,

Nothing else will make your heart beam.
