Cold Hard Steel

by

Alice C. Bateman

The reassuring feel

Of cold hard steel

Living on edge in the city

 

The telephone rings

Some jerk says nasty things

Life on the edge in the city

 

A weapon by your bed

Fear in your head

Living on edge in the city

 

Why canít I get out of here

Must we always live in fear

Life here is no longer pretty

 

The reassuring feel

Of cold hard steel

Living on edge in the city
