Empty Rhymes after Hard Time
Caught a train out Oklahoma makin' for the coast I don't really know where I'm a' goin, got me feelin like a ghost

Jeans are falling off me,
aches are in my bones
empty eyes far as I can see,
people searchin' for a home

Train clacks loudly over dusty, rusty rails I haven't stood so proudly since I was let out of that jail

Freedom ain't nothin
unless you got your liberty
maybe find some lovin'
between these shining seas

America the 'bold' America the 'brave' better do what you're told before they put ya in yer grave.
Today's Poem is inspired one of my favorite songs of all time, and thereby one of my favorite lyrics of all time. It comes from Lyric of the Day #17 - Life on the Road. The lyric is from Janis Joplin's "Me & Bobby McGee"

"Busted flat in Baton Rouge
Waiting for a train
And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose"
