FOWC with Fandango: Opening

Dad opening the Door

Dad was opening the door
There had been many doors in his 90 years
It used to be one key
It was all so simple
Now there are two keys
To fit two locks
There was a time when the door stayed open
Why not, there was nothing to take
I would be playing in the street
Coming and going as I needed
Doors are now locked
No-one can be trusted
Even a 90 year old man might have something useful
And so dad opened his door
I took a photo
There is no longer a dad
or his house at the corner of Northfield Road
And the keys have been passed on
