Curiosity killed the cat.

People said it was the black dog that killed him. But in truth it was curiosity. The sign said, in letters big and red,

Do Not Enter
Guard dog

Curiosity and prohibition, the cat's siren call, painted in letters as red as the matador's rag. He knew the score. There could be no excuse, and no defence.
He opened the gate.
