Elegy for Victims of Drunken Driving
I will not shed tears again
If sobriety prevails this season.
I will not bury a brother again
If drunkards stand far from the steering wheel.
I will not lose a limb again
If rum-infested veins shun the gas pedal!
Is festive season for you to gouge on human blood?
Shadow that dwells in wreckages
Beast that gawks on human carnage
Pandemonium is your plunder.
If only I knew where to find you
I would gather all that is mine
And clamber away from your fateful arms
for you multiple-murderer, triple-mutilator!
