“THIS DOOR IS ALARMED”, though of what

Only a door could tell.

Perhaps something coming through it

Triggered a warning bell


But crossing points easily spark

Feelings of fear and doubt.

To be one forever might make

Anyone sane get out


But if the door was to move

Backwards or forwards, we

Would go in and out just the same

A crossing it still would be.


Pretty obvious – this poem is sparked by those disconcerting signs which say “THIS DOOR IS ALARMED” (if that door is alarmed, I should be scared shitless!)
