Don'T Go There - Poem by Carrie May Bennett, MBA

Seven days of hell
I remembered so well
Scared and frightened
In one little cell They told me to get up
Told me when to sleep
Told me when to wash
Told me when to eat One pillow, one blanket
One tray, one sheet
One soap, one towel
ten minutes to eat The noise will make you mad
The noise will make you cry
Don't even go there
I'll tell you why No strings in your sneakers
No mirrors on the wall
Too bad if you're hungry
Before the dinner call
