Johny Cash For Prison Reform


Johny Cash the “Man In Black”
is more than a country singer
for he brought awareness
about conditions about prisons
and that is a fact.
He sang in prisons all for free
bringing some joy to prisoners life of misery.
Johny met with President Nixon
to make Prison Reform for American’s prisons.
Speaking before Congress about the
nature and purpose of incarceration
he brought about awareness to this nation.
On his Johny Cash Show he lifted human consciousness
on a social issue we all should know.
He fought for the prisoners, for they are the underdog
he did this all without internet or blogs.
He was there at the US Senate subcommittee
with 2 former inmates who say prison life not pretty.
A passionate and vocal spokesman on prisoner’s rights
We must thank Johny Cash for being there for prisoners
putting up a well deserved fight.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
