FanFoFeb: Teenage car crash!

Each day serious injury and death statistics climb due to the marvel of modern technology. Where’s your cell phone when you’re driving?


Petal and Beer Cans Rose petals, a can of larger and broken glass tell a tale.

This should make you cry, I doubt it will fail.

If the car was speeding and the driver had a drink.

If young people died as a result,what would  you think.

A floral tinny tribute, can that be right.

I doubt grieving parents would of agreed that night.

Speeding cars and drunken teenagers do not mix

Don’t drive cars if you’ve had a fix.

They will be be dead  they will be gone

It those  left behind  that have to carry on.

Was it worth the last drink was it worth  the fun?

Will you ever  be able  to get over what  you’ve done.

Will your Mum be able to look at  you again

  1. Sheri, some teens and the mothers of those teens lost have launched a slogan “It can wait.” And whatever it is can wait for when we are safe.

    We are careening toward a techno disaster with all the distractions we have.
    Too many lives lost for no good reason…

    Thank you Sheri it is good to know that you are behind me on this subject. It is a subject close to my heart . thanks again for reblogging the further we get the message the better. Hugs xxx

  4. Your life can be altered in a matter of seconds from a wrong decision. Important message to spread to the youth. My best friends eighteen year old son lost his life when he got into a friends car who had been drinking all night. Matty was so drunk he passed out and the friend buckled himself but didn’t buckle Matty. Lisa got that awful visit from an officer who delivered the horrible news at three in the morning; her life never to be the same. So though the poem is a harsh dose of reality, I believe that it’s needed!!! Sharing now.

    clicked on like but not because I like the message that someone died but like that you shared it so perhaps at least one person and hopefully many more can just stop and think about what they are doing and save their own lives and the lives of others,

  6. Lovely poem and someone new for me to follow! Thank you, Sheri.
    My phone is usually in my purse.
