Boy's Day Out Poem by Shannon Chapel

Boy's Day Out

Rating: 4.6

This morning he was playing ball
This man and his two boys.
But he’ll never play again
With any of their toys.

This Afternoon brought ice-cream cones
For him and his two boys.
The last ones shared between the three
The end to all their joys.

This evening brought a drunkard by
The car with dad and boys.
Ran a red light now he is gone
Two families now destroyed.

A beautifully written poem. So sad.........and it happens too often. I have no tolerance for drunk driving! My parents did so much of it when we were little (with us in the car) that I still have nightmares! This poem is so heart wrenching. Great job. Sincerely, Mary
