Let Me Out

by LaDonna English

Take your key out Johnny,
fiddle with the lock.
Twist the doorknob honey,
there ainít no need to knock.

Push it open Johnny,
donít be so polite.
Oh, the weatherís humid,
this door is sticky tight.

Grease the hinges Johnny.
Pry it with your thumb.
Put your oomph into it
and shove against it some.

Break the door down Johnny!
God, the air is thin,
Iím having trouble breathing.
Come in! Come in! Come in!
