Don't you envy the prisoner?
Does not some shred of pity abound in a frigid soul?
Despite contempt proving the overwhelming assessment
of their life on a skin deep cursory evaluation?
However earnest in the race to extricate any iota of similarity,
you deliberately overlooked the shared affinity with the inmate.
Failed to realise your own intangible incarceration over their apparent one?
Reality Bytes with the venom of snake!
Bytes as vampiric teeth into a cookie,
dental memory banks registering taste for the whole,
synthetic enamel, offering up flavour to the motherboard altar.
