The Prison Walls - Poem by Tony Adah

We live behind bars
In a prison without walls
Speak not;
For the prison walls are coming
Up against the folks
If you look right or left
The walls will hem you in
Because you know yourself
Keep mute
And the walls stunt
But your shackles remain
Speak up and die
Or shut up and be among the slaves
We all live in a prison
Without walls.
