A slang term for Jail. It's usually used with a humorous tint or in writing or speech that's less than serious or dramatic. This is a very uncommon reference to jail.

adj. and n.

Small stuff usually has a pointy/sharp end. (Canadian slang)

in Don't Starve (a Klei Entertainment game, Klei is a Canadian video game Corp.), some characters would call "stinger of bee", "sewing kit" , and similar stuff pokey, if you understand the word 'pokey' as jail, or nipples on one's breast, obviously they conflict with the meaning for the context.
This will keep the pokeys off of me. (spoken by Willow in Don't Starve game)
(this sentence here is for a Beehat, the word pokey here means the perverted bees in the game.)
