P.O.W. escape movie as metaphor
“This is desperation,” she said
As she launched her glider from their roof
As she dug her tunnel from love
And pole-vaulted the electric fence
“Desperation for a life without guard towers
Or solitary confinement
To be precise, without you
I need to break these chains
And you’re the weakest link – Goodbye”
And she left him to stand guard
over the empty cell, he called his heart.
Dedicated with respect to Jersey girl and her great escape.
