I became aware I missed a day
In the middle of the rain
My trouble began the same old way
I started drinking again
One is too many I told myself
As I ordered another round
I remember the whiskey off the shelf
I think I hit the ground
Now in the rain I wonder why
I can't find my way
Nor do I remember if I said goodbye
When I left that day
I stop my car to check the dent
On the fender and the hood
I try and remember where I went
I'm not feeling good
I dry heave amidst a cough
Now I feel bad
I just try to laugh it off
I wonder why the cops are mad
Author's Notes:
Alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes kill someone every 31 minutes and nonfatally injure someone every two minutes (NHTSA 2006). But there are effective measures that can be taken to prevent injuries and deaths from impaired driving.
.........Department of health and human services.
Drunk driving statistics can be quite sobering. Many people continue to drive drunk, regardless of drunk driving statistics. If you choose to drink ........Drink Responsibly
Peace ....Fletch
