Prison Non-Stop

never ending walls
No opening to escape
claw marks on the brick

infinite walking
excercise for the sinners
we're carving out hell

three guards stand watching
mocking the lame sufferers
spitting at our feet

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is for Abe Lopez's Van Gogh's Van Goghs
Title of painting: The Convict Prison
Artist: Vincent Van Gogh
Year:1890
