​Let Me In, Let Me In

Let me in, let me in

War’s about to begin

The hour cometh

The army’s marchin’

Let me in, let me in

I have done no single sin

Open up the gates now

Let me see what’s there within

Let me in, let me in

Hear me shoutin’ and screamin’

Save me from this torture

They want to burn my skin

Let me in, let me in

I’ve served my kith and kin

Read all of your scriptures

Come out and examine

Let me in, let me in

Every minute, I’m growing thin

I’m getting frail and tired

My body is achin’

Let me in, let me in

I deserve a place therein

I’d like to eat your fruits

And play the violin

Let me in, let me in

What am I missin’?

Eddie Price got in there

So did Catherine

Let me in, let me in

Silence is deafenin’

Bring out your arguments

Let’s see who finally wins

Let me in, let me in

I have done no single sin

Open up the gates now

Let me in, let me in

Let me in, let me in

War’s about to begin

The hour cometh

The army’s marchin’

  1. Frank! Great poem. I love the imagery and the language you use.

    I wanted to reach out to you and see if you would be willing to contribute to PresserPoets? I know you read my article with all of the information. We’d be honored to have you contribute a post, or more, and be a part of that community! Feel free to email me at confessionsmalin@gmail.com and I can set you up with Jaime.
