Analysis of A Hundred-year-old rosewood door

mikemint 1979 (ca)



A Hundred-year-old rosewood door
Was unearthed today in an old liquor store.
They say the door was hung before the civil war.
According to the local folklore,
And a newspaper clipping was found on the floor.
Accurately describe the terrific uproar and gore.
when a hundred local women or more
stormed the liquor store and promptly tore
down that devil's door shouting never more.
