    Thought some of you might want to post this, or have a student read it to
    the class:

    Breaking up the hard way...

       Close to the door
       he paused to stand
       as he took his class ring
       off her hand

       all who were watching
       did not speak
       as a silent tear
       ran down his cheek

       and through his mind
       the memories ran
       of the moments they walked
       and laughed in the sand

       but now her eyes
       were so terrible cold
       for he would never again
       have her to hold

       they watched in silence
       as he bent near
       and whispered the words......
       "I LOVE YOU" in her ear

       he touched her face
       and started to cry
       as he put on his ring
       and wanted to die

       and just then the wind
       began to blow
       as they lowered her casket
       into the snow...

       this is what happens
       to man alive
       when friends let friends
       drink and drive.
