In Wisconsin

We fish.
We fish through ice.
We drive.
We drive on ice.
We drink.
We drink while fishing though ice.
We shouldn’t drink while driving on ice.
We shouldn’t drink while driving off ice.
It’s not nice.

Last Sunday, a driver drove on ice.
The ice broke; the broken ice broke her tire.
She drove off the ice and onto land.
She drove for  miles.
Without one tire.
Leaving a trail of:
vehicle parts,
fluids,
and scrape marks.
She came to a roundabout but didn’t,
going straight instead of around.
Causing the car to roll.
She wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.
She was thrown from the car.
She died.

We shouldn’t drink and drive.
It’s not nice.

  1. I once heard said “It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile, and one nut to scatter it all over the road”.
