Tale Of A Lifer (limerick)

Updated on May 16, 2013

Each night as I’d lay in my cell

My guard this cruel tale would retell

It’s theme never varied

My sentence there buried

Dear isn’t this married life swell

      No one ever promised you a rose garden,

      So stop whining and searching for a pardon.

      Well, you certainly know how to make the best of any situation huh? :-) I don't suppose this sentence came as a result of hanging out in the women's showers? ;-)
