PRISONS, PRISONS

 

I BEEN IN PRISON ALL MY LIFE! 

DIFFERENT KINDS OF JAILERS, THAT’S ALL! 

SOME WITH BARS, 

SOME WITH STARS, 

SOME WITH PRETTY BARE SHOULDERS 

AND SOFT BROWN ARMS. 

ONE USE A TIME CLOCK TO KEEP ME STRAIGHT, 

ANOTHER USES A THIRTY-EIGHT! 

BUT THE WEAPON KEEPS ME ON THIS ROCK PILE, 

IS THE TWIST OF A HIP AND A FAITHLESS SMILE!
