Passing The Time - Poem by Mike Farris Jr.


I toss and turn
Try not to sleep
Woke up to piss
Cuz my bladder is weak
My mind is tired
But I can’t shut it down
I’m getting fat
Cuz I just lay around
Jail is a boring place to be
Unless there’s a fight between inmates
Or something good on the T.V.
Thinking of ways to abide my time
When I can’t sleep
I write on these lines
Sometimes good
Sometimes not
But paper and pencil
Are the tools I’ve got
After this I’ll lie back down
To rest my mind
And try to shut it down
