A correctional officer’s duty is misconstrued and scorned by those shrouded in ignorance,
Continuous torment, mentally and physically, swirled vigorously with a battle of intellect.
The madness hidden within, patiently waiting, watching, striking at first insecurity unveiled.
Remain vigilant and unpredictable, express empathy not sympathy, portray insensitivity,
Obtaining and maintaining these attributes are a constant struggle bordering sanity and madness.
Do you think you can withstand the relentless cruelty?
