Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing Prompt

Shuffling in line to the sound of chains

Dignity no longer remains

The line shifts with each step

Familiar cadence with sideways rep

Each man jostled by sticks with jolts

Iron doors are closed by bolts

A daily trip to the yard

Never scrivened by a bard

Tiring routines are the norm

No expectations form

Do the crime and

You do the time

Singsong words by judging men

Some innocents remember when

They thought their truth would win

Now they too are shufflin’.
