Life, work, yard,
what in the world
in common have they?
Why, they’re all unfinished projects
We heard today, then out to splay:
Burma’s political prisoners
are slowly being released,
some after spending an unbelievable
19 years in the pen!
And what, please tell,
are their ostensible ‘crimes’ then?
They didn’t even create a meme
to raise the junta’s ire;
but criticized the odious regime
which held their feet to the fire.
Thus imprisoned without a trial
to soak up jailhouse dust;
back out in the sun
at least for a while
political freedom or BUST!
