The wife of Epimetheus, the fair and curious Pandora,
Unlocked and opened Zeus’s vengeful wedding gift
And released Sadness, Illness, Poverty, Lechery,
And their horrid cohorts onto mankind. Alas.
Yet, the last one out of that evil box, the last one out
Was Hope. Someone, I know not who, considered
That something good.
I hope it is.
