Sirens, misfits in the night (prompt #1)

As the grown man is laying down in his bed, staring at the ceiling, he listens carefully


To the sounds outside


To the silence around him


To the miniscule conversations in the hallway


Until the noises continue to get louder


The police sirens outside progress 


The man's eyes start to close, as these sounds lull him to sleep


 


The door slams immediatley waking him up


The rustle and bustle keeps him up


"I am so sick and tired --" as a police officer throws the boys into a cell


"of dealing with this juvenile shit."


"Fucking misfits man."


 


The man starts to tear up, saying to himself


I wish I wasn't a misfit back then


It's been 50 years and nothing has changed


His gray streaked hair hits the pillow as he falls sound asleep
