Go Greyhound


Korie Hoke should have taken Greyhound if not a cab,
She was drunk, inebriated, wasted, screwed up,
She was pulled over, her keys taken by the police;
She had one more key,
She plummeted into a concrete that struck her auto it did not yield,
She was in an accident that she caused her head to strike a windshield,
Her parents contend that police were at fault,
By letting her out of their sight,
She had a hidden key so she started the car,
Fled from the police and her arrest,
Only to land up in a hospital, injuries all over including her chest.
I hope that the lawsuit will be thrown out,
Because fault lies where fault is,
I feel for Korie, but like everybody else,
You sow what you reap,
Korie thought she would from the law she could flee,
Korie landed a place there would never thought she'd be,
Being comatose and all,
For her parents, you cannot blame the police for actions,
What do you expect to do?
Taze her, shackle her, beat her, use deadly force against her?
I think not, for you would bring assault charges against them.
Korie has had problem before with underage drinking,
Whether its overage, midage, underage,
It’s a problem that can and will affect your life,
It affected Korie’s.
It seems though it has no end.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
