Hit and Run

She should not have gone to gaol

In my opinion

She was not a criminal

Just a young lass in drink

Behind the wheel

Hits a schoolboy

Hit and run

Run away to hide

In shame and fear

At what she’d done


She wanted to make payment to her victim

And to do community service

For the wrong

That service could have saved her

Made her think

Let her meet unfortunates and help them

But no


Off to gaol with you

16 months

She could not do it

Could not there survive

And killed herself


She was 21

+ Very often it is the State that is guilty of ‘hit and run’, by sending people to prison and forgetting about them. Suicides in prison here in Scotland is at a high.
