Ego Without Substance

Someday I’ll catch up to the regular folks that never faltered on the golden path.

Ego without substance

Is the norm in the jail

And in the world of

The  prison uniform

The only chance to show

A little personality is

Underwear and socks

So it goes as you would expect

You wear ‘Tradie’ jocks

And you’ve never worked a day in your life

You wear ‘Hero’ jocks

And you’re in for rape

You wear ‘alpha jocks’

And you bow down to the play makers

Personally I wear the stock standard ‘Bonds’

Because I have

Nothing to prove

And zero fucks given

What other inmates think of me

Ego without substance

It goes as deep

As socks and jocks

This is all fairly run of the mill jail stuff, another favourite is jocks that say a day of the week and are almost always worn on the wrong days. The gap between how good many crims think they are how good they actually are is often staggering. I guess it’s a problem of context, compared to everyone they know rotting in jail and in the absence of ordinary folks they might be killing it at life. It’s an interesting situation for me personally for the same reasons; compared to your average career crim I’m smashing it and compared to an average joe I’m miles behind.

Someday I’ll catch up to the regular folks that never faltered on the golden path.
