The Jug

Lights out 

And back to the cell 

In this strellie stenched community 

There's a sense, that all is not well

Chemically coshed with citalopram,  20ml

Black mamber, spice or shit faced

Either way there's a dip in serontine 

That needs to be upped and replaced 

Foreboding with sense of mence

Being housed on this cat C dorm

Eighteen months of crime and punishment 

Of rehabilitation and social reform 

Work studies keeps the mass occupied 

But in here, is a law onto itself 

A time to reflect on one's misdemeanors

Life viewed, from a bargan basement shelf 

Time served now, note the model prisoner 

Walking free into what is perceived as the norm

Although the sentence is served in sevitude 

Your forever known as the one who's got form

Still Judged, labbled and convicted

Invisible shackles wrap up joe publics brain 

Fingers point at the former inmate

Life after the jug, is just not the same

Toast ! oh crumbs
To Dom, I reply
As I wipe the sleep
From my eye

Enjoy your cereal
Enjoy your day
Thumbs up to writing
No more to say

You've done very well Phil
To rhyme reply to me
Having just come in from work
And not had your tea

I have just arisen
Had my breakfast too
So I am in top form
Rhyming back to you


(Why's my tummy still rumbling?......)

(More sleep/cornflakes perhaps?.....) 😛

Thank you for your comment Don
I like the way you rhyme
The jug part 2 to be continued
I will finish in due time

Lately I write straight off the cuff
The WOL is my word of cloud
Scribble, doodle, thinking Don
What words can me ...proud

But for now straight in from work
I will have to cook me tea
So once again I thank you Don
For your comment and repartee

This is what I like to see
Work just off the cuff
Will it go on more Phil
Or is this write enuff?

Kate is all a'wondering
How this will pan out
Will the jug become a pan?
You've left us all in doubt

As for myself you've left me
Feeling all perplexed
I've asked my friend, explain Phil's stuff
(He's answered back in text)

(But I'm still perplexed.....) 😎
