Rhymes On The Newsworthy Times--Easy Way Block DUIs

Too many cocktails, too many beers, a man rear ends a car and speeds away
Only to smash into a woman in a Kia coming his way
Dead at the scene at the age of twenty-three due to another DUI
How many people have to be maimed, how many people have to die?
Another life due to alcohol snuffed out
It makes one want to in anger scream and shout
No car is issued today without seat belts or air bags
Why on one saving device do we continue to lag
Simple way to DUIs almost completely block
Every car off the line should come with an interlock
Before the first conviction the results cannot be used to convict
Only as a means to a DUI behind the wheel interdict
Over 800 people in 2012 were killed in the Golden State
Too many cocktails, behind the wheel with Grim Reaper to await
The monthly expense would come down
With every car so equipped as it drives around town
Insurance rates would drop as accidents decrease
Less people in jails, fewer lawyers to pay and less high paid police
Has to be a win, win; why, why the delay
Could it be for government DUIs actually pay?
