Do you know that feeling?
As if you held a long, sharp needle
erect, in a balloon-filled room?

The urge to pop just one...
even though you shouldn't,
because someone told you so.

It'd be so easy
and satisfying.
It wouldn't hurt anyone.

You've done it before
and everything was fine.
Maybe just one more time.

It's begging you,
"Please! Pop me!"
What can you do?

It wants you to pop it.
It needs you to pop it.
Pop it!

Do it.
Just once.
No one will know...

Alas, if you do,
it won't be the same
as your first.

You'll need to pop another...
which will burst so loud
that everyone will hear.
