A Drink of Death

Dark are the nights and lonely the days
Time passes so slowly and life is a maze
With memories of moments
Filled with horror and pain
I can hear the voices again and again

“Your child has been killed by a deadly foe”
A venomous spirit drove the blow
It filled the mind of a driver who did not care
For as he drank of its poison he was aware
Of its evil power to kill and destroy
Lives in its path while he did enjoy
A fool’s attempt to find pleasure or peace
The cost?
The life of my child had to cease
