Oakland PD Pulls Cinco de Mayo DUI checkpoints

The shadow of the PC police as we have seen in San Bernardino can kill
Neighbors saw something amiss but stayed silent cowed by the PC chill
Report something suspicious about a Muslim and you’re disgraced for being in Islamaphobia’s grip
So silence and 14 were killed and 22 wounded when Farook and Malik let the bullets rip
A bomb making factory, all sorts of coming and going at all times during the day and night
One word from a neighbor to the police and those two fanatics would never have been able to get into the jihadist fight
The greatest cause of death on the highways, roads and streets
Is not rain, snow, texting, phoning, black ice or sleet
Is the driver who has had one too many and is driving as a DUI
Odds so increased that the drunk driver will hit someone or something and people will die
Too many people drink to excess and even with UBER or Lyft
Drive totally impaired; if lucky you can see them weave and across lanes drift
On the holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, New Year’s Eve or Super Bowl the carnage is worse
But the king of alcohol consumption days is Cinco de Mayo when too many drink until credit limits gone or nothing left in their purse
Oakland PD as part of its mandate to protect and to the public serve
Announced DUI  checkpoints to life and limb on this day try to preserve
Applause, praise, rousing cheers to make sure DUIs did not abound
No only the PC police howling in outrage and once again reason drowned
If you are celebrating in Oakland and drink way too much tequila and beer
Until you hit someone or something from the Oakland PD, you have nothing to fear
That is unless you end up in the morgue instead
Bones broken and very, very dead
