TREAT INMATES BETTER


Inmates in jail are down on their luck
now in jail they feel they are stuck.
Inmates afraid they won’t get out—
life ahead looks dreary without a doubt.
Give inmates jackets, it’s freezing in there
Feel mistreated and nobody cares.
Inmates in jail need sun an hour a day
Prisoners get sun and are treated better in every way.
Treat inmates in jails as humans they are trying their best
they could be given a sheet first that lets them express
How they felt doing the crime—
Even write if they feel they were framed
or sheriff treated them unfairly
or made the only one to blame.
Also they can write
why they did it and how they would change if not to do time.
How they feel about their actions as a crime.
If resources are given to them to find a better way
maybe they would reach higher and not be lead astray.
We are all in this together—
What affects one affects all
Help lift jail inmates up
Not make them fall.
“Don’t smile in jail—
it looks like you are having too much fun.”
This quote is sad, smiling doesn’t hurt anyone.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
