Back in the ‘Ville...For decadent class ‘A’ affection
And a gratuitous shoplifting predilection
Brings another troublesome situation
Caught red-handed; no need for police investigation
Confessed: to avoid further altercation
Future? A magistrates deliberations
Drug treatment order, probation, custodial sentence?
The prison system is overcrowded, rehab might make sense
Lets be realistic, be under no pretence, it might work
If this wasn’t your forty-first offence
The judge shakes his head and frowns for he’s taking a harsh measure,
"You’re a repeat offender, an addict, no national treasure",
He says, "here’s six months - to be served at her majesty’s pleasure",
In Pentonville prison, where there will be time to think
Long nights and long days to reflect on the crimes you have done
To contemplate or to speculate on what will be your fate
When you get out, civilian life can seem a long wait
If your one and only friend in life is your new cellmate....
