Lifer.
 
I cannot see out,
And you cannot see in,
A bed and a light bulb,
All so very dim .
 
Nobody can see me,
I cannot see them,
All alone in here,
Since god knows when.
 
Just a door to see,
Opened at feeding time,
Such an unwelcoming place,
I should not have committed my crime.
 
Wrong place, wrong time,
Lost contact with my wife,
Justice has been served,
But I cannot replace a life.
