Down to Yuma Prison

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sense of self kept on a shelf until eight years or so 

                Dense as moles on sunny days looking for a flow 

                          Down around El Centro  Humid Yuma sun 

Bend marks end of where the Colorado runs 

Nothing green dripping wet dry adobe there 

                Prison set in bad example how folks never care 

                          In a cell to North of prison man may sit straight  

                                    South cell got to crawl after going through cell gate 

Hard to even think space hot man could not turn around 

               Governor excuse with man of God utters sounds 

                          Neither man would sleep at night if Grandma made the rules 

                                   Woman gave purpose to wise men hope and trust to fools 

Redefine in time has sense in a play 

               Make sure the ‘excuse monster’ lays dead just stays away 

                          It travels all around our world  Announces in each mouth

Out the ‘Last Church of Excuse’ when reason goes South 

No sign on my wagon tells work of any God 

               Play blues read all the news think while digging in the sod 

                          Beauty looked for beauty found some days to create 

Something to add.. learn again.. from a reasoned fate

Peace Tony

About cryinforthedyin

I write philosophy and poetry. I postulate solutions for problems..I find similiar things in history to compare to present day, hoping to find a solution to the seemingly difficult task of giving and receiving love. I play music. Blues harp, piano, guitar, electric and acoustic. I sing..I love to sing..Peace Tony
