Don’t drink & drive!

Same again bartender…

‘You  killed  me’,  she  yelled  at  the  man  in  the  bar,
‘in  the  blink  of  an  eye  I  was  under  your  car.
You  dragged  me  and  pulled  me,  and  you  never  knew,
the  damage  you’d  done  just  by  having  a  few.’

He  sits  at  the  bar,  but  he  doesn’t  hear,
the  pitiful  cries of  the  dead  in  his  ear.
He  orders  a  beer  and  a  whisky  to  follow, 
if  only  her  death were  as  easy  to  swallow.

‘I  screamed  and  I  yelled,  but  you  carried  on, 
driving  so  fast, I  knew  I  was  done.
You  would  have  seen  me, had  you been  sober, 
but  blinded  by  drink,  you  ran  me  straight  over.’

Onto  his  eighth,  he  orders  one  more, 
gulping  it  down,  he  heads  for the  door.
Dizziness  slowly  begins  to  subside, 
so  he  gets  in his car and  starts  up  his  ride.

I  hope  you  soon  learn  of  the  pain  you  have  caused,
as  I  lay  here,  so cold, in  the  morgue. 

You  took  me  away  from a life  that  I  loved, 
just for sake of being stupidly drunk.
For  the  drivers  out  there  who  just  want  a  drink, 
take  my  advice,  and  for  a moment,  just  think. 
Don’t  take  your  car,  it’s  safer  that  way, 
and  innocent  people won’t  die  today.
