Being sick with a snotty nose
A cough, fatigue, one of those colds???
For goodness sake's everyone knows
Grandmothers are too sophicated
To wear anything but fancy clothes
Surely not a Kleenex box attached
To their chair, and looking unkempt
And flowing with dispair
While still sick and in the bed
A horrible event ran through the homestead
In the middle of early morn
During an outright winter storm
A car left the road and into my yard
Dropping parts and getting scarred
Crashed landing like thunder in a flash
Shaking the sturdy window sash
Two DOS(dead on scene) next to flower bed
Two living one barely by a thread
One lesson learned during this ordeal
Never ever get behind the wheel
While drinking, for that can kill
Twenty-two years a very short life
Not long enough for the musican's fife
To play for one to dance and enjoy
Just barely out the door, still just a boy
Lesson two learned from this trip around
No matter how bad the situation sounds
Life could issue out a much worse thing
Leaving grief and suffering in its wake
It is good to be alive for goodness sake
Even though my nose drips goop
And I am in on the latest scoop
My heart aches for the losses that linger
Just out my front door, where death points finger
About 3:30 Friday morning January 22, 2016
Chasen Nicklason age 22 died
A young lady in the front passenger side died
One man in the back seat in serious condition
Another young man also injuried
This was in my front yard..
