WTF could be a more misleadingly-named town
to house The Tar Heel State’s Cabarrus Correctional Center
than Mt. Pleasant?
Been keeping busy putting together
The Cultural History of American Painting course.
Didn’t think I’d be speaking regards
Transcendentalism or The Enlightenment
but in due course devouring such things
in order to stay distracted
is what doin’ time’s really about.
Extra work to have a damn syllabus approved so the troops
might get credit then building attendance
is a fickin pain in the arse though….
Why the FBI putz did what he did we’ll never know
unless of course it’s politics against
Lock-Her-Up Hillary. Naw, couldn’t be.
About 122 days till release —
is this the first instance I’ve allowed me to write that?
They say it’s tougher as the date draws near
and the possibility of freedom courses through your veins.
Plus, no way us felons can help but start figuring,
even Xing days off our cell wall like death row cons do.
Kid yourself not, this prisoner’s nada gonna count.
