Poke In The Eye

One inmate lost 40 percent vision

In one eye

One lost an eye completely

Popped right out in a fist fight

Two had swelling on the brain

And a screw copped a broken neck

The culprit getting four years

And me I had my trip

To the hospital to check

If my eye socket was broken

It wasn’t

But I keep the scar as a reminder

Of when I stood up for myself

One inmate got a broken arm

One got jugged

That is, boiling oil

Thrown over him

And me I keep my good record

As a point of pride

Of how I managed

To do five years jail

With only the one fight

Pray the rest of my time

Is as blessed
