~~Broke the Rules...
Left some clues...
I'm a fool...
Living in a cesspool...

I hear the economy is bad...
And getting worse each day...

Although it hasn't affected me in any way..
I can even keep kosher if I choose..

So what do I have to lose? ...
I get three meals a day..

And sometimes a snack...
Clean clothes everyday I put on my back..

Exercise is a daily routine.. That I choose to do.. and it keeps me lean..

My quarters are small.. but after all..
We have a room with a big color TV...
And a place for family and friends who visit me...

Healthcare?  not a problem you see..
As I don't pay for insurance like thee...

Problem with teeth...rectified
Education, Degree, I can even be Certified..

Because unlike you, who lives outside..
You need to work to survive...

Now I'm a part of the system you see..
And have it much easier than any of thee..

I broke the law and now pay the price...
But I'm still better off than your lousy life...

And when I'm released, I will qualify for...
Medicaid, Medicare and even more...
So you may have done it different than me...
But in 'old age ', we're both equal you see?
