Strikes in Belgian Prisons!

There's grumbling in the prison cells
Overcrowding makes them living hells
Too many health and food concerns
No wonder a strike action burns!

It's been headline news for days
And no, this isn't just a phase
The prison warders are too few
The Army fills the gaps – it's true!

The Government is at a loss
Its propositions get the toss
The strike continues – it's Week Two
Prisoners' lawsuits can't go through...

In cramped cells with no exercise
Human dignity soon dies
Communications - pruned right back
“It's medieval!” says a local hack...

Mons, Ittre and Brussels band together
The strike is widespread; will they ever
Get all parties back on board?
Such drama they can ill afford...

In May 2016 and again in January 2018!
