USER USES MORE FROM BEING IN JAIL
Girl with long hair walks in holding room
She is young and I did “Assume”
she was in for prostitution.
No, she was really there for the group
“Drug Norm”she says it makes her use like never before.
She said “Being in jail makes her want to use more.”
Jail has a negative effect on her, she did employ.
“Only people that are killers should be in jail.”
I thought to myself, she’s right, it’s a living hell.
No wonder she wants to use more once in-
being in here a little while made me feel grim.
From the beginning when you do get here
you feel like a animal that is treated unfair.
I really learned another lesson as well too
“Never Assume” for its 3 three fingers
pointing back at you.
She was a sweetheart and I now felt sorry for her
she was stuck in the system without a real cure.
