Dormant Sleep

by James Collins (author's profile)


Dormant Sleep

Haters of the world knowledge
Do not let heavenly knowledge
Rot within your heart
Look beyond our mirrored world
And all its hateful imagery
Let heavens monsoon wake your dormant sleep
Embrace God's gentle acknowledgements
Zzzzzzzzzz rejoice, again I say rejoice
Jesus has given your authority
To love even within the world's grime
You're like a beautiful flower
Filled with heaven's moisture

—James Collins


Inmates decorate their bodies by using homemade tattoo guns made from bits and pieces of materials that are available to them. The main ingredient in designing a tattoo gun is a small motor from either a battery operated hair clipper or a walkman radio. The gun has to put out just the right current otherwise the needle will dig out the skin.

CDC is responsible for creating these blue men who are intimidating to look at, and many times gang codes and Satanic messages are hidden within the tattoos. So many are done in poor taste (eg. human skulls, dragons, barbwire, and gun towers).

Walkman radios and hair clippers with motors should not be made available to inmates as Hepatitis C is at 65% because inmates cannot properly clean these needles. It not only affects the prison population. Parolees can and do infect their loved ones through blood. To voice your comments on this post, you can write, call or email.
