This is my way, I guess

Of expressing my frustration

That all the good people in this life

Die with no explanation

There is no good and evil

Death, it takes no side

How else can I explain

Telling a kid their dad has died

The drunk driver that did hit him

Well, he just walked away

The father driving home

Didnít make another day

His son ran out to greet the car

But a different sight awaited

This car, it had lights on top

And the visit was ill fated

His wife, she came out to the door

And with one look she knew

The daughter came running down the stairs

And into a rage she flew

The police carried on with their job

But for this family life had shattered

Their dad was no longer coming home

And that was all that mattered

The drunk driver stood up on the stand one day

Pleaded guilty and broke down in tears

Said he was sorry for what had happened

Got community service, four years

The family got sentenced for life

Their dad they could never see

And the bad guy in this situation

Funnily enough, walked free.

Dear Cherie-
Mind if I add to the ending-
That is until the day he died
And this monster met his death
He finds then there is a price
After his last and final breathe-

I thought you did a wonderful job of
explaining just what may happen when you roll the dice-
And normally here on this level it is the innocent bystander who gets hurt-
But life is a wheel-
What comes around will go around-Eventually-
Best Wishes~

So very sad! And it happens all too often! That is what vehicular manslaughter is for!!!!! That bastard should have gotten more than that!
