Life on the inside-Life of an incarcerated criminal

Incarcerated is a world of hopes and dreams
A place where you must make canteen
It's where cents feel like millions
Dollars feel like zillions
But one thing for sure, there is no healing
Incarcerated is a world of stars and stripes
A place where you must make a good fight
It's where basketball, handball and baseball
is the games
Working out, robbing, stealing and weightlifting
is your fame, what a shame there is no one to blame
Incarcerated is a world of men and women
A place where you must make communion
It's where love, care and support is minimal
Hatred, lewdness, murderous, slanderness
In here is your criminals
What a life of an incarcerated gentleman
Life on the inside

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
