The Slamming Of The Door by Sean Cregan

 

A poem by antifascist prisoner Sean Cregan.
Of all that prison throws at you,
One memory will endure,
The loud metallic bang that is,
The slamming of the door.

You cope with time and bad food,
The recess stink and more,
But freedom ends in that one act,
The slamming of the door.

I stare through my barred window,
My ears try to ignore,
The last sound that we hear at night,
The slamming of the door.

Just pull it to and close it,
Some peace then to restore,
There really is no need for it,
The slamming of the door.

Alone I lie in silence,
But wake to much furore,
As morning shatters to that sound,
The slamming of the door.
