Imprisoned

Published July 28, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Touch the little bugs in the garden

and they will roll into tight balls.

The possum plays dead to the world,

and the turtle hides inside his shell.

And the man? Somebody is

in need of help, but he sits

there daring you to help,

a tough guy, inmate, con–

you name it.

His Mama’s baby boy. But he

don’t need no help. Just sits

there indifferent, on his bunk.

Tough guy. All alone

in the crowded dorm. His

Mama’s baby boy. Tough

turtle doing troubled time.

Too Inflammatory a Topic for My Discussion

There were two prison riots — one in Florida on Sep. 8 and the other in Michigan on Sep. 11, 2016.  Feelings are too inflammatory to really comment on, so I’ll pass and NOT start the  vicious verbiage.  SORRY, BUT I WON’T APPROVE ANY COMMENTS ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.  Have a pleasant week.
