One Night's Fun

One Night's Fun
October 16, 2007

Never stopped to think,
never though to care.
Ignorantly foolish;
to take a life, he'd never dare.

But with one swig.
a bottle of wine.
He took a life
in record time.

A poison is present,
infected the brain.
Life is no longer pleasant.
He can't feel the pain.

He's gaining speed;
faster and faster.
Commitance of a tragic deed,
is no skill to master.

In the blink of an eye,
the peace is shattered.
The highway's innocence,
suddenly battered.

With a turn of the wheel,
the shriek of the tires,
A sickly steal,
as a young life expires.
