Convicted Criminal

Convicted Criminal By: 1-V-1-02016

Im a Keeper! But it seems he's not my brother! instead of being united, we fight with each other. The life I live, aint what you really think.
I take off my shirt, and Im blasted with prison ink.
Im a criminal, and I've been convicted,
its 3 years, 7 months, before these chains are lifted,
off my wrists, that's connected to this ball,
that I drag everywhere I go, behind the prison wall.
I got 2 arson convictions, and they yell out "FIRE BUG!"
Dealt a bad hand, Im glad I didn't get life,
surrounded by criminals forever, but I do have 2 strikes.
Being convicted, bets believe, the jobs will be short,
cause of my criminal record, and convictions from court.
Some call themselves covicts, and caught up in the pen,
you never win! it you come to prison again and again.
I have too many tattoos, and my hair is getting thin,
that I have to go to baid, takin all the insults in.
If you lookin 4 trouble it's not hard to find,
believe they got a place, where they'll keep you confined
They don't hear me! Like all my words are subliminal,
They don't trust me! why? cause Im a convicted criminal.
