Hard Rock

Just a reference for Rhonda, these men were not in a hospital, they were in
prison...The "screws" were the correctional officers. Read it again and
consider the civil rights violations these men had yet to receive as the
laws were not enacted until 1970.

Research paper

I have never heard of E.Knight until about aweek ago. I am so pleased to
read his poems and this one encouraged me to read more on him and his work.
I have also made home adjustments for my teenager and his "TEENAGER"
attitude to write down his feelings journal them. I also write poems and
journal my feelings and thoughts and concerns have been doing so for 14
years it really works not that it all makes since when you go back read it
and i can almost feel the feelings all overt again. This poem to me was
very strong i also like "straight up" talk just give it to me straight and
frank. this poem i felt like i was in the hospital with the other "screws"
I felt as if i was waiting for Hard Rock to act out. this was exciting to
me interesting and I wish our Literature teachers would teach us more poets
and authors of color. Give our children hope to that ther eis an escape
from these streets and poverty. GREAt!
