Jail Taxi

Responding to comments which say that free rides spoil jail birds who need a more tough, loving guide.

In the dark of the night

The light is in sight

Though hidden by fright —

Might goodness arrive?

Could caring drive?

Should scorned souls strive?

Reach out your hand

If you understand

How bad luck brands —

If you give a bleep

Help make the light creep

Through change let change seep.
