*MURDER*

Justice is deaf
dumb and blind
justice in America
you can not find

So America—
I'll be damn.
For I will not remain silent
while you run this scam.

I shall speak out...
I shall be heard.
For America's death penalty
stinks like a turd.

It reeks of...
total devastation.
Just more murder—
Further frustration.

Yes they commit murder
to prove murdering is wrong.
As they did in the movie
The Executioner's Song.

Murder, murder
and murder some more.
Sending dead bodies
out the executioner's door.

Why in the hell—
can you not see?
That this is murder
in the land of the free.

Yes in the land of the free
and the home of the brave.
Where they murder their citizens
throwing us in a grave.

Yes justice is deaf
dumb and blind.
For justice in America
is the murdering kind.

10:54am Took me a few minutes to write this down and I made a few changes while I was writing it down. I hope people enjoy this poem. It's a little funny death penalty stinking like a turd :) It's true. Well I'm going to have me a cup of coffee and then... I guess I'll write or see what's on TV or do some drawing. Wish I had some color pencils and paint. Last year they stole all my art material when I got in trouble for trying to earn money selling my art. I have to be D.R. free 6 months before I can get back on the hobby craft list and purchase more art supplies.

11:58am Just drew Taz down at the bottom. One guy just went out for a visit. It's nice out there in the visiting park. I'm fixing to sit back and watch some basketball and write a letter.

2:42pm Watching the Miami Hurricanes play B.C. in basketball and fixing to eat me a beef stew over the potatoes, corn and cabbage that was on the lunch tray. So I'm going to eat now.

3:55pm Watching the Hurricanes beat B.C. Waiting on the shower. They should be starting them up in 18-20 minutes. It's back to front, so I won't get my shower until after 5pm. I may do some more ab exercises... In fact, I'm going to right now. 40 [underlined] crunches.

4:34pm They're serving us dinner. Some reason it's been early the past two days. So that's why they haven't started the shower.

4:45pm Just finished eating. I was writing, but I think I'm going to lay back and watch some more basketball for now.

5:16pm They just got the showers started. There's a tornado watch in this area until 8pm. I'm watching ESPN Sports Saturday on ABC, wish we had ESPN. All we have is free TV channels. Which is better than nothing. Let me write Anne.

6:07pm Just finished washing my clothes. I'm next in the shower and when I get back I'm going to just lay down and call it a day.

6:35pm Just got back from the shower. I'm watching the news. 38 dead. One was a 4-year-old child ripped from his mother's arms. :( So sad. It looks like a war zone. I feel for them people. My heart breaks for them. One old couple just finished rebuilding their house from a tornado last April, and it destroyed their new home. Seen a story on Rush Limbaugh calling that woman a slut and prostitute. "He's a f***ing idiot!" I don't see how people put up with him and his stupidity. Judgmental S.O.B. There's a cute little polar bear cub getting his first play in the snow that's really cute. Well I'm calling it a night. If I'm unfortunate enough to wake up tomorrow, I shall return.

Sunday March 4, 2012 7:05am I see Rush Limbaugh has now apologised. He only did it because he was losing sponsors for his show. All the sponsors should pull the plug on that brain dead S.O.B. I was just thinking about how they had five men testifying about birth control before the senate. There shouldn't have been one man up there testifying. Men should have no say so over a woman's body! I hear people crying and religious groups whining about tax dollars going for birth control. Yet they're not saying a damn thing about their tax dollars being used to murder men and women in these death chambers under the mantle of justice. Everyone who's paying taxes, their money's being used to pay for these executions. I'm going to workout here about 8am then wash clothes and bathe. And then I need to write a couple of legal letters. At 3:00pm I'm going to watch NASCAR. At 3:30 Miami Heat plays L.A. so I'll be flipping back and forth between the race and the game. I'm sore from these workouts. I want to put together a good leg, ab and cardio workout this morning. I may work on doing some more poetry or do some more little drawings in the corners of my journal.

7:59am Starting workout. Crunches 40, 40, 40. Leg lifts laying 10, 12, 10. Laying side-leg lifts 35, 30. Knee raises 25, 25. Squats 40, 40, 40, 30. Lunges 14, 12, 12, 12. Toe touches 50. Toe raises 45, 45, 40, 30. Toe touches 50. Standing side-leg raises 25. 8:54am finished workout and it was a good one.

8.59am I had me a good workout. I'm fixing to sit back and see what's on CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. Nope, Lee Cowan is sitting in today. I still need to finish up a letter. Tomorrow morning I want to get up and hit chest, shoulders and back hard.

10:28am Just finished a letter to Anne. She's 73 years old and has a heart of gold.

11:14am I was just messing around drawing. They brought lunch. I put it in a bowl. I'll eat later on. I had a soup (noodles) with a chilli poured over it. Byrd is going out for his visit.

1:47pm Fixing to wash clothes, bath and relax for a bit. I did some drawing and was working on a poem. Let me get this stuff done.

2:35pm Finished washing clothes, bathing and cleaned the floor. Now I'm going to lay back and watch some basketball.

3:11pm Just found out David Gore is set to be murdered on April 12 at 7pm. I had a dream about Stoney last night. That we were all in a dorm talking to him. One of those crazy dreams that doesn't make any sense. Well, I'm fixing to watch the race, it's about to start.

4:17pm Race is in a caution. I was thinking about the review this week that I'm supposed to get for the heightened security. It'll surprise me if they take me off of it. I'm too critical of this corrupt sorry administration. And they're going to try to keep their foot on my neck as long as they can. And I don't care, 'cause I will not back down to these bunch of low life drunks and drug abusers. Yeah, I said it! One of the sgt. who's best friends with a top administrator died of an O.D. And any media source that contacts me, I'll give them the story. Or what I know of it. I tried to dig into it, 'cause I was hearing of cover ups that took place in the Union County sheriff's dept. I don't know how true these rumors are, I'd love to find someone to investigate and see what's fact, and what's fiction. Any takers? Any media outlet that contacts me is welcome to interviews, whether they want to cover the death penalty or on prison corruption.

6:09pm Denny Hamlin won the race. Miami Heat are losing. And I'm fixing to lay back, watch the news then some boxing on 4.2 LA T.V. and then the Amazing Race and go to sleep. So another day on Florida's Death Row. Peace and love to all, and my condolences to all the grieving families of those lost in those tornadoes and the school shooting this past week.
