Addiction Poem about Family

A child writes about the terrible effects drinking and driving can cause.

The Car

© Jennifer King
Children quietly play outside
as one of the children suddenly cries
the teacher ran for the boy’s help
so she could cure him for he wouldn't yelp
the unsupervised children were still at play
there were no clouds, it was a wonderful day
five kids were playing ball
when they lost it because it hit a wall
it slowly rolled across the street
thats when the little boy and the car were to meet
as the boy ran for the ball
the fast car didn't care to stall
the speeding car hit the boy
another life to destroy
the little boy let out a cry
then he slowly started to die
the car driver was drinking beer
then what he saw put him in fear
the little boy was his only one
the poor boy was this man’s son
so just think twice about what you do
because this story could happen to you!
