A Prison View MAG

By Anonymous

   The fourteen by fourteen cavern

Only boasting a window

And a rusting metal cot

With its unforgiving mattress,

Grey cinder blocks

Define the square perimeter of my cell,

And the ancient tile floor

Is covered with inches of sorrow

from past inmates,

Finally my keepers,

The confining bars

Are broad masses of steel,

Standing unfractured,

Watching the shadows

Walk the steadfast wall,

I sit in my modest corner,
