He sits on my dresser, 
waiting for me.
I look at the box, just have 
to give it a pop.
Every time he comes out to 
scare me.
I'm sure he winks at me.
Can't catch him, it's a 
feeling I get.
Who's in there?
Did they put a soul in 
there too?
Now I wait till I'm dressed,
because I'm sure he's 
Jack is his name, as a 
male has no shame.
We know what they do 
undress you they will,
He doesn't need hands,
His eyes will do.
I turn him around ,
What do you know?
He's staring at me in the
mirror too.
I push him down,and in my
head I see him pop up 
 and smirk instead.

    Hello Anne, So nice to hear from you. Hope things are well. Jack hurt his back from the lack of knack. When he lost his couthe and his innocent youth. Trying to be so clever with the crank of the lever. If it was me, his head I would sever. :) Take care Anne. Peace.

    Well you know what they say. You don't know JACK! It's funnier if you say it like Jack Nicholson. Enjoyed!
