Lot's Wife - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

A sentry stood
right by the door
he said he would
just like before
deny to me
admission to
the place to be
the things to do.

And since
the sentry
looked like God
I froze and waited
for the nod.
And when it came
I saw Lot's wife
she walked again
and took my life.
