the jailhouse blues have consumed me
the life that I lived has doomed me
for all of the things I've done so wrong
the law says this is where I belong

society says that justice is due
for a life of crime and mischief too
if only I knew then what I know now
I' have lived my life different somehow

so here I sit feeling so sad
because of the things I did that were bad
I know I have  no right to complain
my crimes and bad deeds, I cannot explain

    Interesting write. Don't know if it is pure fiction or true, but a good read anyway.
