The Demon Drink.

One for the road, was what he said,
just one hour later, he was dead.
A semi trailer, parked on the  side,
decapitated, by the tray of the truck, was how he died.

Alcohol, is an insidious thing,
untold misery, is what it can bring.
Broken homes, and battered wives,
causing the untimely ending, of countless lives.
The cost to society is untold,
affecting every one, young, and old.
So just remember, when you raise that glass,
if you drink to much, a tragedy may come to pass.
