Barbed Wire


Alcohol


Just talk about what dogs wont do
Then you won't have to go there
What a waste of spirit life
Forget about the dime
Children starving for a Father
Need a meal and Mommy's smile
Not the scourge of
Alcohol

    Yes alcohol has been behind the destruction of many families and innocent
    lives. The problem is not in the alcohol itself but the abuse of it. Drink
    responsibly and save a life maybe your own. Thanks Bob for this very
    thoughtful write. (Report) Reply
