Move to No BAC:  Zero Tolerance For DUI

DUI Poems


Why do you drink
why can't you think
drinking can lead you
to the grave.
Live and teach your son
to be brave,
teach him what's right,
teach him what's wrong
If you drink
you won't live long.
Your son watches
your every move.
He needs his father
to be a positive role model.
He doesn't need to see
you drinking out of that bottle.
