They never knew what was coming,

It was a hot summer day.

They didn't even know till it hit them,

And sent them to their graves.

They didn't even have time to scream,

It was upon them so fast.

They had done nothing wrong,

So why did it take them.

They said the driver was very drunk,

And shouldn't have been driving.

They put the wrong doer behind bars,

Did all they could for the families.

They cried a lot for their losses,

Spent many day in mourning.

But no matter what they do,

They can't bring them back.
