Four Walls Of Grey 1971

here’s one I wrote years back…
I’ve seen the four grey prison walls with bars upon the doors
I’ve watched as prisoners spat and cursed and walked upon that floor
The sound of steel as doors closed and the jingle of the keys
I’ve even seen broken men crawl to guards on their knees
I’ve seen the prison pallor upon a gaunt face
I’ve been in court and often saw a prisoner meet his fate
I’ve known the taste of food they serve up in a tin dish
And I know the feeling of freedom of which I did miss
Of being called a number instead of by your name
And to some warders there it was just a game
I’ve known the fear of loneliness when left all alone
I missed the sea and country where I always roamed
I’ve seen them beat a prisoner for not a thing at all
But I know one day I’ll be free and walk right out that door
