Punishment by R Soos

this cell is not what you believe
you believe I am punished sitting
here on this bunk with an unresponsive
cellmate lost deep in his solitude

the true punishment was when you lied
and then felt compelled to embellish
the lies through the phone on facebook
in the newspaper in court over and over

stabbing the truth with your deceit and envy


r soos is one of those old poets who hasn’t learned better, and intends not to. He blogs several times a week at http://rsoos.com . His books are available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. His life has the same aches and pains as all the other old folks he knows.
