|FRANK: "Do you know the kind of things they do to you ten times a day if you do a bit in Columbia? Do you? The warden there was Joe Reagan--"Meatball Joe".. If that slob was a penologist, I'm a jet airplane pilot. I did 11 years. I got out what...4 years ago. I went there because I stole 40$. Yeah, it started with a two-year bit, parole in six months...and right away I got into this problem with these two guys. They tried to turn me out. So I picked up nine more on a manslaughter beef. Some other things. I was 20 when I went in, 31 when I come out. You don't count months and years. You don't do time that way. You gotta forget time. You gotta not give a fuck if you live or die. You gotta get to where nothing means nothing. I'll tell you a story all about it....Once there was this Captain Morphis. This 300-pound slob, he couldn't write his name. He had a crew of 16-17 guards and cons. Prison groups, crews. They would go into these cells and grab these young guys and...bring them up to hydrotherapy in the mental ward... gangbang. If the guy puts up a struggle, they beat him and he winds up in the funny farm. Anyway...word comes down that I am next and I do not know what I am supposed to do. I'm scared. 11:30, 12:00, the lights come on and I got this pipe from plumbing. And I wack the first ha.....first guard in the shins..and I go through a convict and another convict. Anyways, I get to Morphis and I wack him across the head twice. Boom. And then they jump all over me, do a bunch of things. I spent 6 months in the hospital ward, but...Morphis, he is also fucked up real good. Cerebral hematoma. They pension him out. He can't walk straight and he dies two years later...which is a real loss to the planet Earth. Meanwhile I gotta go back into the mainstream population and I know the minute I hit the yard I am a dead man. So I hit the yard. So you know what happens? Nothing. Nothing happens. Cause I don't mean nothing to myself. I don't care about me. I don't care about nothing. And I know from that day that I survive. Because I achieved that mental attitude.....|
