There is no Them

There Is No Them

There’s them and there’s us,
and you, my friend, are us,
he said,

and I thot,
he is both right and wrong.

It is simpler to live believing everybody
comes from a place filled with good intentions.
I am an innocent convicted. Within my
constraints I try and sight slights, injustices, as what might make friendships between guards
and inmates, the guilty and the guilty, innocents and guards.

The days and months tick by, I stick to a single

there is no them.
