[ DUP Tributes ] Prisoner 24601

 
 
Paroled  
after an untold
number of years
having done his time
released from a cold cell
reeking with sweat, grime, farts
and other assorted stenches of
three hundred Spartans strong
ready to leap forth with spears
from trenches dug in deep
along the outskirts of this
underworld kingdom come
to latent complacency
walks in with an expression
madder than Max
in the Thunderdome
and proceeds to kick me  
square in the gut
off my feet
proclaiming,
Brother,  
THIS IS POETRY!
