Note: I have never been in trouble with the law. I imagined what it is like to be incarcerated from movies I have seen and television programs.
Lawyers & judges & weights in the yard
Boredom & violence & long games of cards
Riots & tear gas & corruptible guards
Unhealthy repasts & meals cooked in lard
TVs & toilets & shanks in the neck
“Noone saw nothing” just shuffle the deck
Gangs & youth killers & lifers resigned
To a life behind bars, a world in a bind.
