Iron Gate – Author Billy Charles Root

Wrought iron gates, London, United Kingdom

The chest of the weeping worrier
Pounds the iron gate
Scared hands start shaking
Quiver bulging overflow
Sword unsheathed awaits
Racing mind is running
Path of victory planed
The heart of the weeping worrier
Prepares to meet its fate
The iron gate is swinging
The hinges rusted and bound
The heart of the weeping worrier
Weeps for the iron gate
Too many lost
Too many gone
Drops awaiting sword
Shaking hands latch and lock the iron gate
