Why You Never Came Home

You may not care now But you will When your dinner gets cold When your dog wonders why you never came home When your dad grows old Without you there to help him And he always said He wanted to walk you down the aisle But instead another man Wheeled you into the morgue Because you drove while you were tired Because you opened that SnapChat Because you weren’t paying attention to the road And now you can’t even say goodbye You can’t hug your mom when she cries You can’t pet your dog while he dies You can’t look your dad in the eyes But you can sit And rot In the hollow grave dug up By someone who isn’t paid enough To bury reckless teenagers Who isn’t paid enough To support your crying family As you’re lowered into the ground Who isn’t paid enough To look your little sister in the eye And tell her that you’re not coming back Your little sister Who always wanted to be just like you Who wishes you were there to hug her And tell her everything is okay Your little sister who still wants to be just like you Drives off the road when she turns sixteen Because you drove while you were tired And you opened that SnapChat Because you were reckless driving And she always wanted to be Just Like You.
