Poem: Prison is a Wonderful Place

Prison is a wonderful place

People here from every creed and race
Memories that time will not erase

When the court adjudicates your case
You could disappear without a trace

When they send you here it’s in disgrace
It’s a fact you’ll have to learn to face

Clientele so treacherous and base
Every night with them you’ll share a space

If you try to leave the dogs will chase
Every step you take they can retrace

A way of life not easy to embrace
Wasted years you never can replace

It’s all right if you can stand the pace
Prison is a wonderful place.

About Louis William Rose

I seek no office other than the office of parliamentarian, and no reward other than for myself and my fellow men and women to live in a free country.” Louis William Rose is a lifelong student of parliamentary procedure and political process. He has served as parliamentarian for various organizations. A political philosopher, poet, singer, and writer, his articles have been published on-line and in pro-liberty papers in Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, and Montana. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of North Florida, graduating summa cum laude in 2004, with an additional two years of graduate work in political philosophy. Mr. Rose is an outspoken supporter of the basic rights of man, especially freedom of speech, association, religion, individual rights to personal defense and property, and of republican, constitutional forms of government.
