The Jailers Door


My blood pressure went up today

When the jailer said walk this way


It wasn't his tone of voice you see

Rather the steel door that closed 
behind me



An impromptu visit it would be

To see a brother of the Cree

Incarcerated for living mischievously


40 ounces and a stolen car


Won't get you very far

The police in hot pursuit

Didn't give a hoot


That Victor did'nt steel the car


He said the ride was all he took

Now that's enough for the lawman's hook

He'll do two years for this silly charge


Testing the police cars supercharge


Jail house tooth paste 
is devoid of taste

I still think this is a real waste


A classic case of 
Lawman's hast

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
