Recidivism

When violence is so assuredly part of life
That its presence makes no difference

When poverty is unbearable
But the loss of freedom is acceptable

When the order of confinement
Is greater than the possibility of connection

When the expense of holding
Is preferable to the expense of helping

I offer you no conclusions.
You must draw your own.
