Necessary Extinction

From Lonely Dragon by Donny Welch (author's profile)



Dear Prison
You cause pain,
horror, suffering
But the money machine rolls on
lifes blood oil the gears in your works
grinding the poor of society bureaucracy
into the gold dust of
Why wont you fade in history
like the dinosaurs of memory

Thank you for this beautiful poem! I, too, hope that prisons are one day a distant memory.
