Fireworks Tragedy - Poem by Saiom Shriver
He was sitting off fireworks from a boat
in the lake for his children, nieces and nephews.
He let 2 of he oldest children
into the boat with him. The firework
malfunctioned... the boat capsized...
hitting this champion swimmer on the head
and drowning 1 of the 2 teens.
When his brother went diving for him, he
saw glowing far below
the flashlight his brother still held,
as if his departed spirit was telling his
brother where to look for his body.
