Man at the Gate (1913)

Album: The Last Rider (2017)
  • The man at the gate
    Seems to be waiting
    For someone or something
    To enter the scene

    The man at the gate
    Appears in the distance
    To prove his existence
    In 1913

    With the man at the gate
    There is no way of knowing
    If he's coming or going
    He's caught in between

    The man at the gate
    It appears at a distance
    Could use some assistance
    In 1913

    His silhouette has been captured unknowingly
    Trapped in a postcard for all eternity

    This photograph from the turn of the century
    Snapped by a photog at a moment in history

    The man at the gate
    Stands like a statue
    Not somebody that you
    Would notice it seems

    The man at the gate
    He was living and well once
    At Trinity Bellwoods
    In 1913 Writer/s: RON SEXSMITH
