About Nicholas Hunnicutt

“Got a Call”
Family got a call the other day
The police had something to say
Come and pick up his stuff
The outside has had enough
He’s goin away for a while
Not leavin in style
He’s goin in a barred van
Going to see the man
Going to pay for his crime
Gonna cost him a lotta time
This is me in a nutshell. In my teen years, I joined a street gang and became an enforcer for that gang in Tucson, Arizona. I became an addict at 17 although I wouldn’t admit it.
I sold drugs and did home invasions as an enforcer to collect drug money payments, had a child with my childhood sweetheart; loved and lost her and my son because of my life style. Now after a plethora of crimes including a bank robbery here I sit as a guest of the State of Arizona penal system for 16 years. My life, of course, didn’t start here or end here and now you can be the judge if you have ever been where these poems might take you.
