Parolee - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

No one there to meet him
When he came out the gates
A young man when he entered
He came out old and grey

Imprisoned for a serious crime
His sentence was not harsh enough
No visitors went to see him
Alone he had it rough

His family had long disowned him
No friends to call his own
Segregated within the system
He did his time all alone

He moved from his home town
He will always be unwelcome there
His crime will not be forgotten
That's a cross he has to bear
