What a wonderful and entertaining story in rhyme! Great use of the 'lock' theme!!
You communicated so much in this poem. It was fast paced and flowly nicely. Great job!

A nice light-hearted poem. How precious freedom is.

Good job! Very entertaining.
Marilyn...this poem effectively kept me sort of "at attention" as I read it...perhaps the short, punchy lines were part of the experience! This was my favorite stanza:

"The Danger is constant
For I hold THE Key...
The Key to the lock
That could set them free!"

There are layers here...about the immediate situation as well as the hope of something else...that leave me thinking.

I also am reminded that "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom" (II Co. 3:17).

Well done! I enjoyed reading this!! :-)
