Under the influence

Most of us would never
play Russian roulette
but we'll take a drink
from someone we just met

you won't go in the army
because you might be shot
but you'll run the health risk
of smoking pot

you won't rob a bank
because your actually sane
but you'll break the law
to snort cocaine

you know murder
is a terrible sin
yet you'll kill yourself
injecting heroine

You won't sky dive
in fear of going 'plunk'
but you play the game
of driving drunk

I really like the style of this, and it has a nice, consistent rythm to it. And I love the point!

 

ps: I love your username too ;)
