Detained at our pleasure.

April 27, 2015

The prison has bars,

that serve cold beer,

and sofas deep and plush.

The prison has beds

with plump pillows

and duvets filled with down.

The prison has TV

with Sky Sports on

and new films on demand.

The prison has friends

you’ve never once met,

but who you speak to all the time.

This prison has keys

to every cell,

but no-one wants to go.

Breathe in, breathe out.

Breathe in, breathe out.

Outside fire engulfs all.

Looters take what once was yours.

Chelsea and Arsenal are on TV.

Breathe in, breathe out.
