William John Pabts, is a prisoner with a 2 year sentence on drug related charges. John is a father of 6 children, and had worked in the past as a Greyhound driver, then a truck driver for a total of 20 years.

He was released to a half-way house, only to be sent inside again for a parole violation.

He writes short little poems to try to break away from the day to day monotony of prison life. In tracks 3 to 7 are recordings of some of these poems. Some poems are preceded with explanations, to put them into context.
