    Jail Life

    Listeners wept live in a place prisoners are kept walls are solid
    All the hydraulics of my criminal past are locked in and squalid
    Fouls and run down, my style’s done now clown acts in my life
    Locally evaded and morally degraded the facts aren’t nice
    They latch my cell then attach a bell escape is a Mission
    Impossible like Tom Cruise, the food is rude give me visions
    And bad dreams awaken with sad screams no good being imprisioned
    Use to be blinging around town now have a ringing sound
    In my ears took the wrong ride only the strong survive this renowned
    Ordeal, love sandwichspread but the guards damage my head
    With repeated blows and deleted foes they don’t bandage the dead
    In jail you insecure but mature and be sure to cover your tracks
    mother want me back home safe, I failed her face the facts
    Live here still in rage and fear will age me overnight like crack

    You opened the door to a slice of life that all too many become aquainted with. Tight write.
