The Small Metal Side Gate

The Small Metal Side Gate

Small thud as steel hits steel
Gate again is closed behind
Air outside civvy fresh
Air inside dank, of sweat

Didn’t make sense, never did.
See the gate’s a wire mesh
Air’s the same, alright

But oh, no
Not to those who understand
It’s different
Inside, outside

And till the sacred book out hour
I’ll be a soldier

(It's at the far left hand side.)
