Bigger Jails Might Help
It sometimes appears as though our prisons are much too small,
And judges are worried that prisoners might be involved in a brawl,
So they allow prisoners easy bail or time in half-way houses,
It amounts to time off as they go home with their spouses.
This may be great for the prisoners but is a symptom of trouble,
A situation where the crime statistics could double,
It doesn’t take a lot of brains to know we need bigger jails,
It is not necessary to be told the whole gory details.
Much larger prisons should not be difficult to figure out,
Good for the extra prisoners too so they can run or walk about,
And then the judges wont have to bother sending prisoners home,
They can be sent to a larger jail and they’re never alone.
