This is a poem I wrote 14 years ago in November of 2002. As I go back and read some of my older poems, I contemplate whether or not I should share them. And if I do share them, should I edit them? Naw, I'll just give it to you how it is. … Continue reading The Sky Is Beautiful
I chose this title because the majority of prison tattoos revolve around hate. Not all. But most. Some guys will get their woman's name plastered across their neck. So I suppose I could've called this post : PRISON INK : THE ART OF LOVE. Because it's also common to see the faces of … Continue reading Prison Ink: The Art of Hate
Did you know that children who live with dogs are more likely to be healthier than those who don't. Children with dogs get more exercise than children who live without dogs? They also spend more time laughing and being happy. But wait, it gets better! According to numerous studies, children with dogs in … Continue reading Dogs Help Children Develop Strong Immune Systems
If it ain’t yours, leave it alone. Jealousy is a motherfucker no matter where you’re at.
Back in the mid 90’s there was this punk running around Walla Walla. He went by the name Tiffany.
Tiffany was in a relationship with Shadow. Tiffany is white, Shadow is Mexican. For months the two lived together. Until one day administration broke up the two.
Tiffany got moved into a different cell. Inside his new cell lived Terry. Terry has been in prison for years and has several more to go.
It wasn’t long before Terry was butt-fucking Tiffany and making him suck his dick. Tiffany told Shadow. Shadow was pissed.
Shadow approached Terry out in the yard and said, “Hey man, Tiffany is my bitch. Leave her alone.”
Terry laughed and said, “Her? That punk has a dick bigger than yours.”
Shadow wasn’t laughing. “Just stay away from her, alright?”

Gambling is huge in prison. Convicts will bet on anything, such as: professional sports, prison sports, or how long it’ll take before a sex offender gets his ass beat. The most common way to get in debt is playing cards. Specifically: Poker, Spades, or Pinochle. And the most dangerous type of debt is a drug debt.
Scott is serving 16 years for manufacturing meth. While in prison, he enjoys shooting meth and heroin. He pays for the drugs with the $100 a month he gets from his grandma. Unfortunately, $100 only keeps him high for 2 days. But Scott has a plan. He’ll extend his line of credit and rack up debts.
Before he knows it, he owes $800, and the month is only half over. “Aw what the hell” he thinks, “My sister would send me $100 if I ask.” So Scott goes and gets more drugs.

As a juvenile, I served 18 months at Green Hill. I was out for 14 months before I put myself in prison with a 43 year sentence. Approximately 80% of the kids at Green Hill end up in prison. So I asked myself, "What would it take to significantly reduce that number?" The … Continue reading How To Keep Juvenile Delinquents From Coming To Prison
Making money is easy. I’ve been doing it for years.
My society is different than yours in more ways than it’s similar. But there are similarities: Money. We all need it to live comfortably. The more we have, the more comfortable we are able to live.
In this prison society I live in, I’ve always been in the “wealthy” bracket as I sit atop the prisons totem pole of higharchy. But compare that to mainstream society and I’m broke as a joke. This $0.42 an hour ain’t cutting it.
It also doesn’t quite put me in the “wealthy” bracket in here. I had to “get my hustle on” to reach “wealthy status.” (please read about it in Stone City: Life In The Penitentiary)
That was back before I made a commitment to the people who love me. A commitment to follow all rules and laws. And to respect…
