Death Became His Friend

Forsaken by his wife and financially down on his luck
And for a way out of his problems he was mentally stuck
As he drove on the freeway in the Winter morning sunshine
On his way to work at around quarter to nine
Depressed and suicidal and racked by self doubt
As of his problems he was thinking of a way out
Of late to him life had been very unkind
The dark clouds of grief were weeping in his mind
He deliberately strayed to the wrong side of the road
And crashed into an oil truck carrying a heavy fuel load
A loud bang in a ball of fire his life did end
In his moment of greatest need death became his friend
Financially down on his luck and forsaken by his wife
Under a big truck he ended his life.
