Carceral Jungle

By Marcos Ramirez

Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

The dangers of living in prison with LIFE…

Where anger & pain contours haggardly cry

And banners of shame haphazardly fly

When dreams of freedom they gradually die

Like elderly residents from cancer and hepatitis


Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Another petition respectfully denied

And no jailhouse lawyer can get you retried

No sentence reduction, them judges are biased

Though wrongfully convicted on CPD’s lies

Denying the torture, coercion and our constitutional rights


Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

The Donald became number “forty-five”!!

Attacking our immigrants destroying their lives

Reversing Obama’s reforms, prisons reprivatize ‘em

Racists idolize him, Hatred ionizes, going Ape-shit

in this Matrix

Make America great again? Huh? A-pex/A-dolph

Compromise Mind Tricks


Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh my!

NBC News reports another “9” homicides

While Eddie Johnson is preachin’ “Tough-er on Crime”

The same old “Band-Aid on a bullet wound” approach

And yet murder rate is constantly rising

And the PIC is monstrously super-sizing!


Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Marcos is incarcerated in a prison in Illinois
