The following is a poem to insidetime, from issue October 2012
The New! Volume 5 insidepoetry book a collection of hundreds of poems by prisoners, is available from this site!
How many more poems do I have to suffer?
You know as well as I know, reality is far tougher
Please – no more metaphors for brown and for white
I’ll scream if I have to read another “I’ve seen the light”
There is a possibility of course that you are simply deluded
Truth is you’ll soon be back in prison secluded
Easy to say that you’re done with smack and crack
But reality bites, just like the monkey on your back
Do you want an award for going out of here clean?
I give you an hour before your dealer is seen
We can all write deep poetry ‘bout Mr Brown, Mrs White
How we loved them once but we know now it ain’t right
Compose line upon line of how this time we’re real keen
Truth hurts though mate, you ain’t gonna stay clean
You’ll soon be back collecting spoons, citric and pins
Looking for the days dinner in supermarket bins
Waiting, all jumpy, for the postie on your giro day
Saying sorry to your girl as the pigs lead you away
Stood in the dock withdrawing, you get sent down again
Sitting on the sweatbox doubled up in pain
A screw slamming the door a sadly familiar sight
You sit down and write a f***ing poem ‘bout you seeing the light!
