Prison life

editorial image

We’ve heard that those in prisons,

All have televisions,

And we don’t expect it to be so sweet and nice.

But some prison visitors

Told us inquisitors

Few deserve to pay the awful price.

These words were also spoken

About the scared and broken,

By a man who sometimes works on the inside.

That a great per cent

Have bad mental health,

Or had substances on which they once relied.
