On Remand

Image result for in gaol

Tick Tock

goes the clock

turn the key

in the lock

doing time

for a crime

get the boot

man in a suit

cries OBJECTION!

in need of correction

no more choices

no more voices

boys in blue

say what to do

when to sleep

what to keep

where to go

do not show

EMOTIONS

two stripes seek promotions

wearing green

nothing seen

you’re gonna pay

till you hear the judge say

NOT GUILTY!
