Study

The opportunity has arisen

to do some study.

To put some letters

behind my name.

I am able to make use

of the small prison library,

and complete my course

by correspondence.

This is considerably healthier

than stewing in my cell,

although the other inmates

loathe my initiative

and new-found drive.

I am already a hated figure,

now I shall be the over-educated

stuck-up bastard too.

But I should like to see

my children proud of me.
