It's hard to be creative,
Sitting in this cell.
There is nothing to stir
My soul here,
Save the far off toll
Of a church bell.
It's hard to be creative,
With thoughts of freedoms guise.
There's nothing to beleive in,
Save the pain,
Save the lies.

salient point
I'd declare this poem perfect if not for beleive ....

what I liked - in particular is when that subtle rhyme slipped in - soul/toll but believe [note spelling] that the word 'here' in that line there was superfluous ....

loved the repeat of save which made it resonate as a word worth contemplating and used with 'soul' increased the impact for me.

yup .. lots to praise here.....

one more thing
title implies flippancy which contradicts the character of the poem ... in my opinion

Thank You, Pen. Need to start using speel checker(lol)more often. I visited local inmates for the holiday, which inspired this verse. The title is a bit flippant-sorta humorous as compared. But I was stuck and the double meaning gave me a chuckle, so it stuck.
