Another female prison guard
fell for a beautiful bad boy
and helped him escape,
didn’t plan on another guard’s death,
certainly never anticipated
murdering an elderly couple
whose car and cash were needed.
Prisoner and guard hoped to elude capture
camping deep in a national park forest.
That devil love!
She couldn’t help herself.
She had to have him
even if it cost her everything:
two daughters, one son,
a living and pension,
the ability to walk down Main Street.
Though they will be separated
for however long they may live,
she now finds she actually got enough of him.
Prison turned out to be her life’s work after all.
