I decided to do just that. I’ve never written to someone in jail before — and certainly not somebody in the Federal Pen. So, rather than using the conventional methods of finding a prison pen pal, I thought I’d just send a note to disgraced former Congressman Bob Ney.
Here’s my less-than-classy poem:
So you stole from the taxpayer
to be a Saint Andrews player
think it’s bad in your prison cell?
Just wait until you rot in hell.
Got your own message, or better yet, poem? Let’s have it — iams, haikus, limericks, sonnets, or even some avant garde free verse.
