so many ways

the obvious ways

drugs starting as fun

that painless long slide down

booze as social then the need

until you are no longer

the fun every party clown

oh motorcycles

the men we’ve lost

young boys starting stars in their eyes

crushed by cagers drifting

listening to music passengers

fingers on phones texting the boss

accidents by mistake poor design

freaks acts of god wrong time place

illnesses diseases over eating

under exercise neglect

shootings beating knives

& those who took their own

to end the pain

leaving that

for us

to pick up
