Is Your Head in a Box?

"Head in a Box" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Description: A man with a small box for a head.

Read the accompanying short poem I wrote for this cartoon

"His Body Grew. His Head Did Not!"

He was taught
what he should know,
so he never thought
how he could grow.

His body grew
beyond belief.
His head stayed small
and never free.

Just to think
original thoughts
brought his heart
to a dead stop.

So he stayed safe
within the bounds,
outside of which
he wouldn't be found.

He died that way,
his body aged.
His head, alas,
a tiny cage.

The dreams he had,
forever lost.
His body grew,
his head did not.


Don't be this guy!
