THE DUNGEON

My lesson is learned,
So this I do know:
My freedom is earned,
So please let me go.

Accused of a crime
I did not commit,
I’m jailed for a time,
And so here I sit.

Sentenced to the earth
And condemned to die,
Whatever it’s worth,
Regardless of why.

Kept here in the dark,
Blinded by the light,
The outlook is stark,
The truth out of sight.
