Life in Prison

The prisoners treated life as game
Yet, surprised to be locked in rusty cells
There's nobody except themselves to blame
Harshly punished if anyone rebels

Criminals of any ethnicity
Must act upon laws without temptation
To avoid scenes that occur brutally
Like disputes or assassinations

This dungeon howls with prisoners' screams
Inmates can't submit to reality
Aggressors omit others' strengths and dreams
Making life behind bars a penalty

Family and friends are awfully missed
Hoping for that date they should be dismissed.
