Poems From Prison

I watched this documentary

About this couple that robbed an armored truck

Something like 3.9 million

This man

The brains of the crime

He had been arrested for robbery

21 years before

But get this

He was released

Because

He wrote poetry

Poems from prison

Supposedly he was decent


I had previously wondered what it would be like to write from prison

But I never imagined

Poetry could get a man an early release

He had seduced a beautiful young woman

And she become his accomplice in the robbery


Something about this story

Makes me happy

And also

Pretty bummed
