Ghosts of Boggo Road Gaol

Ghosts of Boggo Road Gaol

BRG

spirits released on execution
(hanging from the gallows beam)
souls rising with the slashing of the throats
(payback time in the prison heirarchy)
ghouls let loose from suicide
(despair in the dark of brick walls and cold sweat)
spectres emerging with death from old age
(lifers lament)

ghosts forever bound,
an eternity
behind bars
