    The penalty imposed
    for writing
    expressively
    is

    LIFE

    I have been sentenced to L I F E

    ... to write

    Handcuffed
    to concept papers
    with ink pens
    for keys

    Chained to short statements or phrases
    that won't ever get
    ... time ...
    to be free

    An etymon to be written
    in the confines
    of compositions
    between thoughts
    behind bars
    and
    in the small spaces of
    concrete lexical elements

    I was framed
    by abstraction
    with false intent ...
    my lyrical terminology
    was taken out of context

    imprisoned by my
    mind's discontent

    A libretto that
    got locked up with
    my expletive emotion

    ... and

    now there is
    no chance for vocabular parole
    before this term
    will expire

    No conditional release
    will be granted
    and all of
    my transcripted notes
    will remain
    unspoken

    So here I sit on "Soul" Block C
    pleading the 5th
    or maybe even "involuntary poetry"
    but until my next appeal
    I am here
    to finish out
    a FULL Life Sentence.

    Serving a full life sentence
    in an 8 and a half by eleven
    cell...
    because ignorance has been
    killed after the quill tip was filled
    .....alone.....
    locked in solitary confinement
    exercising so my PENt in
    aggressions....
    are set free
    ......and my scribe gets stronger
    as I write........trapped
    on a chain gang of undisclosed
    soliloquies and mental
    passages I let the world see
    my soldiers story minus
    the HBO...
    .....comma laden
    period puntuated
    and semi-colon persecuted
    when I wrote my song
    and graphically depicted my
    psalm......
    ...............the alphabet
    was the jury that judged
    me when I was convicted
    said I was a "POET" so
    to the paper I am sentenced...
    been here for fifteen years
    now no parole.....so many
    tales told........from behind
    the green tinted bars
    of this mental
    PENitentiary....


    watch out now, you dun got a brother started!!! nice piece N2....keep flowing Ni...So...May..Gio...San...Ang...oops my fault...do what you do....classic
