Jail - by Bob Atkinson

Jail
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson
'tis such a waste of life
to banish fear of jail time
so many lives which could be saved
dive into boxes no more than caves

if, on the other hand
should horror of incarceration stand
then life among us would be so gentle
dread not bottoms nor donkey lasses

would we in our daily lives
see or imagine painful cries
of those who took a sacred trust
and dumped it like the morning dust

would we view devil's island
as the sacred land of civil propriety
shrinking waste of lives disposed
who would otherwise harm the folks
