How many of our relatives must we lose?
How many tragedies must adolescents see?
For you to cease to tie one on
Paricularily behind the wheel

Are you aware of the traumas and commas
You’ve caused?
Of those who’ve lost their sanìty

The blood of the nation upon you
The cry of thousands on you
Are you that deaf not to hear
Though year to year you’re urged to lend an ear

I dispise you fate geneses,
For you’ve driven our drivers to death
Made us dug six feet for innocent souls

But once again as a nation
We request that you show compassion
For our spouses, siblings and our selves
I curse the day you were born harmful liquor
